119th Penn Relays National Preview

PHILADELPHIA – The event that often draws the most excitement at track and field meets is the one-mile run. It should be no different this weekend (April 25-27) when some of the top prep milers from the northeast and beyond leg it out at the 119th annual Penn Relays Carnival, held at historic Franklin Field.

Updated Penn Preview: Boys

Overview: To some, winning a Penn Relays Gold Watch is a goal just as, and even sometimes moreso important than winning a national championship.  Watches are awarded only to the overall American winners in Championship of America events at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, kicking off for the 119th time this Thursday at Franklin Field.  In some cases, most notably the sprints, it is harder to win a spot on the top of the medal stand than it is to win a national championship.  This fact is because of the international draw the relays bring to Philly; currently, there are 62 schools registered that are not from the United States, with Jamaica the most represented foreign country with 32 individual schools.  For some, winning a watch means beating the world.
