For 112 years the Penn Relay Carnival ...
... has offered an event for
everyone! Held at renowned Franklin Fieldin America's most historic
city, fans can get a chance to see the finest track and field athletes
from ages eight to 80 (and often older)!
Many of the world's greatest stars compete each year at the Penn
Relays in the USA vs. The World Showdown. In 2005 Americn runners
included Justin Gatlin, Bernard Williams, Allyson Felix and Alan
Webb. International stars such as Athens gold medalist Felix Sanchez
(Dominican Republic), Usain Bolt (Jamaica) and the British 4x100
gold medal relay team tested the USA's best to the delight of the
throngs of relays fans a year ago.
The goal of
the Penn Relays is a simple one – to provide
the best Track and Field competition for the greatest number of
participants of all levels, ages, and abilities. Each spring, more
than 15,000 student-athletes from high schools and colleges around
the nation visit Philadelphia to compete in the Penn Relays. Even
though more than 100,000 fans annually attend the action at Franklin
Field, the expenses of operating a major sporting event such as
the Relays are considerable. In addition to security, maintenance,
cleaning, staffing, and facilities improvements, the Penn Relays
also supplements the travel expenses for many of the intercollegiate
teams. Those expenses have continued to rise each year while the
event’s revenues have remained relatively stable.
