HANOVER, N.H. – Leverone Field House will once again play host to the Dartmouth Relays this weekend as the 48th incarnation of the event takes place Friday through Sunday.
The Dartmouth Relays have become an institution of the indoor track & field season and this year is no different.
The high school portion of the weekend will begin Friday afternoon and continue through Saturday evening with many of the boys and girls relay teams running. These two days will be broadcast live on FloTrack for subscribers to their video streaming services.
Several nationally ranked teams and individuals will be participating in these two days of competition. Those runners, jumpers and throwers will represent teams from not only New Hampshire and Vermont, but high schools from across the Northeast.
Dartmouth and several other teams will reclaim Leverone on Sunday when the college portion of the weekend gets started. For the Big Green, it will mark the second home meet of the year after a December showing against UNH and Maine.
Boston College, UMass, UMass Lowell, Keene State, Castleton and the University of Montreal represent a diverse field of competition on the final day of the three-day meet.
Perhaps the most hotly anticipated race of the weekend is the Grafton County 1-Lapper (Sunday, 1 p.m.), which gives individuals age nine and under the opportunity to run once around the track. Those participating receive a gift bag with commemorative items upon crossing the finish line.
Those looking to follow all the action of the weekend can do so via Lancer Timing’s website (LancerTiming.com), which provides live, updating results all three days.
In addition to high school and college races, there will be several Masters events between Saturday and Sunday. Many Dartmouth alumni on both the men’s and women’s sides come back each year to participate with Josh Cyphers, Emmaline Berg and Dom Filiano competing this year to name a few.
Admission each day for the Dartmouth Relays is $8 for adults and $5 for individuals 18 and under.
