Spring is track season, and Atlanta Track Club heads to the oval for the All Comers Track and Field Meets continuing each Tuesday evening starting at 5:30 p.m. through June 14 at the Emory University track located adjacent to the Woodruff Physical Education Center.
With All Comers, the name says it all: they are open to everyone, no prior experience or team membership required. It's a great chance to learn about this branch of the sport, get some fun exercise, or work on sharpening your skills. With a range of participants from toddlers to Olympians, it's fun to watch as well.
**PLEASE NOTE you only have to register for All Comers once each season. If you are unsure if you have already registered, please click the "Confirm Registration" button below and check before registering. **
