Fit & Fun

The Annual Spring Break Open Track & Field Meet began to support college teams that did not have the resources to stage meets during the spring break. Today, in its 24th year, it is an all-comers meet that includes athletes ranging from just out of high school to masters athletes older than 35.

This year’s event, at West Seattle Stadium, begins at 9 a.m., Saturday. Organizer Bill Roe, of Club Northwest, said the meet will try to accommodate late-registering athletes, even those who show up on the day of the event — but only when their entry doesn’t necessitate creating a new heat.

“That rarely happens, so most people are pretty safe,” says Roe. “They can always email me to inquire about specific events.” He’s at bill.roe@usatf.org.

A minimum donation to Club Northwest is required. It will cost $10 per person and $3 per event if registering at the meet. For details see: www.clubnorthwest.org.

On May 29, Club Northwest’s Summer All-Comers Track & Field Series begins its usual 12-week run at Shoreline Stadium, marking the 45th season for the popular series.
