The Redondo Union High School (Redondo Beach, Calif.) Track and Field program is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Redondo Nike Track Festival, taking place Friday, March 14th and Saturday, March 15th, 2014. The track festival is inviting top-flight competition for teams and individuals from throughout California and the west coast. In addition to the Saturday Invitational we are once again hosting the Distance and Throws Carnival on Friday night.
Entries will open on December 2nd.
Redondo Union High School is proud to announce that Nike will be our title sponsor for the meet again this year. Nike’s involvement will create an enhanced experience for all athletes, coaches, and spectators.
The Redondo Nike Track Festival is a very unique track and field meet. Redondo Union High School has a new track and field facility that is among the finest in the state. In addition to the all weather track, there are first-rate field event areas and a full synthetic warm up field next to the track. There will be a DJ playing music throughout the meet and during the distance races to help promote the festive, pumped-up atmosphere. In the stadium, there will be the Track Zone, a unique and fun area operated by Nike. In it will be a running gait analysis and a full retail space featuring rock-bottom prices on current Nike training shoes and spikes. Nike will be offering a sneak peek at upcoming products and they will also be providing popular heat pressed logos and designs on all souvenir merchandise purchased at the meet as well as other fun things. We will be sending out more information in February. We want this to be a fun AND high quality meet. The top finishers will receive specialized Nike medals and all winners will receive Redondo Nike Track Festival Champion backpacks. The top boy and girl team of the Distance Carnival and the throws competition as well as the Saturday meet will receive special custom wood handmade team trophies.
The Redondo Nike Track Festival will host 50 complete teams and invite select individuals and relay teams. The meet format will have a Friday night distance and throws meet and an all day and session on Saturday with expanded opportunities on both the track and in the field events.
The Redondo Nike Track Invitational has become one of the premier early meets on the West Coast and has included many of the top teams from California. We will offer a schedule large enough that most of your team will have events to contest, while providing elite seeded events for those looking to qualify for Arcadia and the Mt. Sac Relays.
It will be an exciting Friday and Saturday filled with great performances and fun for your athletes.
