Pre Classic 2005

Postby KEL » Thu Apr 07, 2005 4:54 pm

TJ,

As one who's enjoyed numerous Pre Classics over the years, I have some questions about this year’s event.

Are you sure there is that much interest in the two mile event, verses the 5K, amongst the elite runners?
Since you are not having women’s pole vault this year, why not another field event for women?
Are you going to have one of the jumping events on the east side of the stadium for us diehards who enjoy that side of the field?

Thanks TJ, for all the great Pre Classics over the years.

Tom,

I've already got my tickets. If I can at all, the Pre is a must see every year for me .
Hayward field is the best place in the country to watch a meet and there are no better T&F crowds!!!

Not to speak for Tom, but I hope that most meet directors ignore (or at least try to re-orient) elite runners as to what they want in favor of what the PUBLIC wants. Fortunately, most athletes are smart enough to realize that whatever they do that's good for ticket sales eventually effects--positively--their bottom line.

I just want to voice my appreciation for the great effort and great results the TJ has had in bringing quality meets to the US.
