Get Your Track & Field On
Wednesday May 06 , 2015
There will be an experience for all five senses this summer, as over 3,000 athletes will be competing in three major competitions over nine days at Foote Field.
We're gearing up for a BIG summer as the Road to Rio runs through Edmonton!
Picture all of the flags waving, representing all of the participating countries, as the stands fill up with adoring fans.
Hear the gun firing, announcing the start of another intense race.
Enjoy as your taste buds will be in overdrive, indulging in the tempting foods from the onsite food trucks.
Stretch out your hand to high-five the winning athletes following their victories, touching greatness.
And smell that green grass that covers the field and the burm at Foote Field, the green strands bending over as shotput balls fall with a "thud".
