Black Hills State University alumni, including former track & field and cross-country athletes, are encouraged to participate in the 27th annual Alumni Mile weekend Jan. 25 and 26 in Spearfish.
“This event allows for our current student athletes to connect with athletes from the past,” said BHSU head track and field coach Seth Mischke. “The support from the Stadium Sports Grill helps make this event possible”.
On Friday, January 25, the ‘warm-up’ will take place with an evening Social at the Stadium Sports Grill.
On Saturday, January 26, the ‘starting line’ of the race begins at (tentatively) 1:00 p.m., in the Young Center Field house. Please be “stretched” and ready to run at 1:00 p.m.
Following the alumni mile and the university 4x400m relay races, there will be ‘finish line’ activities with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages in the Joy (Proctor) Krautschun Alumni/Foundation Welcome Center sponsored by the Stadium Sports Grill.
