Teams: Oak Park River Forest (host), Fenwick, Morton

Meet has been cancelled.

Plan on cold and damp/rainy weather.  Wear plenty of gear: tights, uniform, sweat pants and top, uniform jacket and pants, windbreaker, coat, hat, gloves, rain suit or poncho or umbrella, and whatever else you need to stay warm.  Bring extra socks and keep them dry.  Bring a towel.  

An old blanket is a great thing to have on cold meet days.  You can easily stay wrapped in it until start time and then quickly get wrapped back up in it after your race.

Check out long jump world record holder Bob Beamon (29’ 2.5”—an Olympic record that still stands) and Ralph Boston at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City:


The wind is cold at Concordia after 4pm.  If you aren’t over-dressed, you will be miserable.
