Track & Field, Walking Events
Move to Howard County

Due to a late conflict at the Prince George’s Sports Complex, our track and field meet, along with the walking events, are returning to Howard Community College in Columbia. The original dates remain Aug. 5-6. Registration is open. 

For men and women ages 50-plus, this is a USATF-sanctioned event and also open to out-of-state residents. HCC is a familiar and popular site where we have held the meet nine times in the last 15 years, so we’re happy they could host us again on quick notice.
