Last night we held the Rollie Miles Grand Opening event and it was spectacular!
A short recap of the numbers:
- 70+ Competitors
- 150+ spectators
- 40+ Volunteers
- One Heck of a lot of fun
Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, the competition commenced with 50 and 100 meter races for the little ones. Followed shortly after, the children were given a chance to learn all about the 4X100m relay from real Olympians EJ Parris and Neville Wright! Meanwhile, Jesse Lipscombe (The Evening's MC) demonstrated some truly amazing high jumping. At the other end of the track from Jesse, the Pole Vaulters were in their top form! Records were broken, rankings were achieved, and PBs were made by almost everyone! Following a short break, we held the Alberta 10,000m championships. Over 30 people arrived to compete; everyone gave their all, it was a great race to watch!
We want to thank everyone who came out to see the event, we hope you all a fantastic time. We would also like to thank all of the volunteers, officials, athletes, and vendors.
