Hundreds of athletes from all across the province attended the Eagles Classic track meet at Maple Ridge Secondary on May 11 to compete in events ranging from hurdles to javelin and more.

The all-day competition pits the best of the best athletes in Grades 3 to 7 against one another, with a few of the events also involving masters and open class competitions to include more veteran athletes.

Hosted by Golden Ears Athletics, this was the 18th iteration of the annual track meet, with nearly 1,000 spectators coming out to support this year’s batch of athletes.

Golden Ears Athletics president Phil Pitzey explained that the historic mile run was once again the featured distance race of the day, with perpetual trophies that name past winners being awarded to the fastest mile runner, top thrower, most outstanding individual meet performer, and top team.
