Questions for Tom Jordan

Postby G.Ahearn » Mon Mar 10, 2008 8:21 pm

I hear that there will be an all-comers track meet at Hayward Field during the Olympic Trials--one of the down days. How cool would that be! Is this true? Also, any word on the South Eugene HS track being open to the public during the trials--to watch the athletes practice?? Thanks.

Wow! Cool!

Will masters age-groupers be included?

How will the races be run -- by seed time, age group?

When will entry info be posted?

P.S.: TJ for many years was executive vice president of World Masters Athletics. Hayward Field hosted the 1989 world masters championships and the 2000 and 2003 USATF masters nationals.

If anyone is in the area and really wants to hop in a meet with field events, we have all-comers meets every Wednesday near Seattle.

Not exactly around the corner, pvp (not that I'm a pole vaulter). :)

This gives me an idea:

Schedule a 100-meter dash just for visiting media! :D

Millrose features its Fastest Kid in New York races.

Why not decide the Fastest Scribe in Eugene? (Photographers, bloggers and assorted media types are welcome.) Also invited: Jill Geer and other USATF press minders.

Just show your credential and take a lane. :wink:

Even serious meets like the Trials need comic relief :!:

Ken--At the IAAF World Championships, they have a media 800m, which might be a little more realistic than a 100m, although it might be fun to see John Crumpacker or Jim Dunaway run the 100!

Or, there's the Hootie 5k!

I doubt that there are many men within 10 years of Jim Dunaway's 80 who could dust him in a foot race...especially if a fine dinner with a beautiful and intelligent woman were the winner's reward.
