2018 Drake Relays

Outside of one of the world’s best track-and-field meets, the Drake Relays has something for everyone. If you're a Bulldog returning home to reconnect with campus, classmate, and friends, then don't miss the All-Alumni Tent party. If you’re a Drake Relays fan, bring the entire family to events like the Beautiful Bulldog Contest, or rub elbows with Olympians at the Pole Vault at Capital Square

 

 

It's time to come home.

Whether on the Blue Oval or off the chain, Relays Week is where Bulldogs celebrate themselves. Take your pick: a little road race, some stadium action, a tent party or two, plenty of athletic feats —and a whole lot of good friends. You’ll come back to campus this spring and make new memories, but first, we want to hear about your old ones—specifically your favorite one. #MyDrakeRelays

Is Relays where you flaunt your Bulldog button collection on top of your rain gear? Where you check to see if Stalnaker still looks the same? Where you check out the latest coat on Painted Street? Where you drop in on Professor Edrington? Where you just might, you know, if there’s time, stop by Peggy’s?
