The eighth annual Harry Jerome Indoor Games will take place Saturday, February 3rd at the Richmond Olympic Oval in Greater Vancouver. Meet Director, Doug Clement has been busy assembling a competitive field for the event that is named after the Canadian sprint icon.
“The Achilles Society is excited about the eighth Jerome Indoor Games presented by TELUS as many young athletes will be identified who will be the stars of the future,” shared Clement.
Deadline to register for the event is Friday, January 26. Asked how many entries he expects to see Clement told Athletics Illustrated, “We expect our entries to approach 400 as we near the deadline Friday evening.”
The Olympic skating oval, built for the 2010 Winter Olympics, is a facility that accommodates a five-lane, 200-metre oval running track, plus room for field events like the shot put and high jump. There is also a separate 100m straightaway that offers a safe, five-lane environment for up to 60m sprints and 60m hurdles events.
Many junior, midget and youth athletes will take in the event, however, racing is available for masters and all abilities.
