Nova International proposes CityGames for London, from Jason Henderson/Athletics Weekly

One of the most creative events in our sport is the CityGames concept. The idea, quite simply, is to put a track meet in the center of a major city. I witnessed the CityGames in NewCastle, UK last September and was quite impressed. 

The CityGames is a perfect idea for the U.S. CityGames could be rolled out in NYC, Boston, LA, Chicago, SFO, Portland, among other cities. The combination of bringing the excitement of elite track to downtown major metropolitan areas and city runs could go over well in the U.S.

It will be interesting to see the success of the CityGames in London.
