Spring is track season, and Atlanta Track Club heads to the oval for the All Comers Track and Field Meets sponsored by Comcast Business continuing Tuesday, June 2 and running each Tuesday evening starting at 5:30 p.m. through June 16 at the Emory University track 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. **
The Mile at this week's event will be timed and included in the 2015 Grand Prix Series standings. This is the seventh event in the 2015 Grand Prix Series. Registration for the Mile Grand Prix event will be separate from All Comers registration and will open May 2, 2015.
