Indoor Comes To a Triumphant Close

Last Saturday, the Illini Track Club hosted the biggest NIRCA-only indoor meet of the year: the Illinois Club Relays. Every year, the return of the Club Relays means the opportunity for the best club runners in their region — in one of the most competitive areas in the country — to line up and go toe to toe. This is often one of the best early indicators for outdoor Nats, now barely over a month out. This is real racing, so times don’t matter. That said, when you get that many great runners on a start line together, and all of them are trying to win, there’s going to be some fast performances.

I predicted last week that there would be some speedy races, and I was correct. Don’t believe me? Check this out:
