Black Hills State University alumni, including former track and field and cross country athletes, are encouraged to participate in the 19th Stadium Sports Grill Annual Alumni Mile Weekend, January 28 and 29.

“This event allows our current student athletes to connect with athletes from the past,” said Travis Covey, BHSU head track and field coach. “The support from the Stadium Sports Grill helps make this event possible.”

On Friday, Jan. 28, a ‘warm-up’ will take place with an evening social at the Stadium Sports Grill (following the high school invitational track meet).

On Saturday, Jan. 29, the ‘starting line’ of the race is set for 12:15 p.m. in the Donald E. Young Sports and Fitness Center Field House preceding the Dave Little Invitational University track meet.

Following the Alumni Mile race, and the University mile race, will be ‘finish line’ activities with lunch served in the Yellow Jacket Hall of Fame room sponsored by the Stadium Sports Grill.
