COACHES TAKE NOTE!!!
The Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee has announced security enhancements for this week’s 2013 Drake Relays to ensure the safety and security of all fans and athletes in attendance.
Competing athletes, coaches, officials, medical staff and media with the proper credentials will be permitted to bring necessary bags into the facility. However, those items will also be subject to search prior to entry to the facility. Participants should give themselves ample extra time to enter the Stadium. Participants who have checked in and are being clerked to the track CANNOT take a bag/backpack with them or it will be searched, delaying their transition to the stadium.
All coaches and athletes should enter Drake Stadium though the spectator entrance on the NE corner of the facility. There will be separate lines for persons with bags.
Proper credentials will be required to enter the warm up areas. All bags entering either the Knapp Center or Field House will be searched. Do not leave bags unattended at any time.
Drake University will reserve the right to turn away any item that might be deemed a security threat.
General Information — To begin the entry process, read the Shuttle Relay Informational letter below. Coaches should print off and fill out the '2013 Intent to Enter' form and return it to the Drake Relays Office with a $15.00 entry fee for EACH team entered. Entries are due by Friday, March 15th.
Note to Middle School boys and girls teams. Again this year, the middle school event will be a 4x100 meter relay on the Jim Duncan track on Friday night.
