Manchester Running Company will host a twilight summer track & field meet on Saturday, July 16th at 5:00 p.m. at Tolland Middle School. Traditionally, MRC puts on a series of track & field meets on Thursday evenings, but the usual venue is under renovation, so we have a modified offering this year.
The meet will begin at 5:00 p.m. and is open to all ages and abilities. Participants may compete in as many events as is feasible for one low price. We will provide necessary equipment for all contested events but participants are welcome to bring their own implements such as shot puts or starting blocks as well.
