Other information:
Join the Penn Running Club to compete in a fun and lighthearted yet competitive sprint / field event meet at the end of the fall season! The goal of this meet is to prioritize events that aren't usually contested on the NIRCA scene, such as sprints and field events, and give athletes in those events something to look forward to during the XC season. Penn is the latest university to continue the trend of hosting track meets in early November to give non-distance athletes a chance to test their skills and optionally add a peak. Franklin Field is well-equipped to host all Olympic track and field events (excluding the marathon and racewalks), and prospective field event athletes should definitely contact us and we'll see what we can do to set up your event!
