The Drake Relays is one the most competitive track meets of the season. In Des Moines Iowa, April 25th-27th you can catch 11 Prairie girls qualifiers and 11 Prairie boys qualifiers racing against all classes in Iowa (1a,2a,3a,4a).


Each event is ranked and the top 16-24 individuals or relays (varies from each event) in the state are chosen to race at this meet, making it very difficult to qualify for.


Not only is this a meet for just the high schoolers but you can catch collegiate level athletes and masters participating in separate events.
