“Track Meet”…I’m not sure the term does the St. Vrain Invitational justice…it is truly an event! Year in and year out, this meet is always at the top of the list for “total track experience”. There are professional athletes competing in “All Star” events like the 100 & 200 Meter Dash as well as an All Star Mile and Pole Vault competition. They set the pole vault up in the center of the football field so it’s very fan friendly and viewable. In fact everything about the meet is fan friendly. They have a large video screen that shows races as well as race results…pretty much in real time. Additionally the announcing is done with the fan in mind…very informative and enjoyable. Mark Roberts (Lyons Coach) is the meet director and does a fantastic job along with the folks at Longmont High School to keep the meet on schedule and efficient. Typically a number of “state bests” come from this meet as the high profile meet attracts some of the top talent around.
If all of that doesn’t spark your interest, consider this, MileSplit is nationally streaming three high school meets live to their subscribers this weekend…and you guessed it…the St. Vrain Invitational is one of them.
I could go on…or you could just show up…hope to see you there.
