Drake University Calendar

Drake Relays

Visit Department Website

How many universities offer up-close, even behind-the-scenes, access to a world-class track and field meet? At Drake, you’ll have an unparalleled opportunity to experience one of the nation’s premier track and field events: The Drake Relays.

But ask any Drake student, and he or she will tell you the Relays is much more than a track meet. In fact, many students say Relays is the greatest week of the year.
