LAST MEET IN THE 2016 SERIES: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10!
Our annual all-comers track & field series is our pride and joy! We have been doing this for the general track & field community since 1969, when we took over a languishing series founded by the long-defunct U.S. Track & Field Federation. In the early days, we were at Husky Stadium. Then the rent went up, and West Seattle became home for a few years. That old black rubber track wore out, and we went to Bellevue for a few years – both the high school and the old community college track. Back to West Seattle. Out to Shoreline, followed by another spell at West Seattle. Edmonds was the site from 1993 to 2004 (except 1997, when Lynnwood stepped in), although we occasionally had to visit Lynnwood or Terrace or Kings when Edmonds was booked for one or two nights a summer. Shoreline (pictured) was able to accommodate us for a full twelve meets beginning in 2005, so we were there for 2005 and 2006, followed by a year break at Redmond while the Shoreline infield underwent new turf installation. We went back to Shoreline in 2008 and have happily been there since, with record-breaking entries since 2008. For 2016, due to the installation of a new track at Shoreline, we moved all but one meet to Edmonds Woodway. Our planned return to Shoreline will be May 31, 2017.
