USATF Outdoor Championships - Day 4
Everything to know about the Drake Relays

The 114th Drake Relays are here, and the competition promises some enthralling action. Taking place in Des Moines, Iowa the action will be divided between the track, field, and the roads over the course of a week between April 21 and 27.

The competition will field hundreds of athletes from the high school, collegiate, and international levels, as fans gather to witness the action. The Drake Relays will feature a total of 17 World Athletics Continental Tour events, including the javelin and hammer throws, 3000m steeplechase, 800m and 1500m sprints, as well as the 100m and 400m hurdles.

One of the highlights of the event will be America’s star hurdler Lolo Jones returning to competition. On April 25, the 41-year-old will be inducted into the Drake Relays Athletes Hall of Fame during a luncheon. A couple of days later, Jones will compete in the 100m hurdles at the event.
