2012 Penn Relays to be proving ground for London Olympics

The 118th running of the Penn Relays is set for April 26-28 at historic Franklin Field at the University of Pennsylvania, and many of the world’s best will be on hand as they prepare for this summer’s Olympic Games in London.

The Penn Relays hosts over 22,000 high school and collegiate athletes from around the world, and routinely attracts more than 100,000 spectators at Franklin Field over three days. With more than 60 countries represented, there are more athletes competing in the Penn Relays than in the Olympic Games. For more information, click here.
