112TH DRAKE RELAYS TO AIR LIVE ON RUNNERSPACE.COM
Fans of the Drake Relays unable to attend in person will be able to watch a live broadcast of America’s Athletic Classic thanks to a partnership between RunnerSpace.com and USATF.tv.
“We are thrilled with the response we have seen from fans in purchasing tickets to this year’s Drake Relays,” Franklin P. Johnson Director of the Drake Relays Blake Boldon, said. “However, we also know not everyone is able to travel to Drake Stadium this year to enjoy America’s Athletic Classic, so providing live streaming through RunnerSpace.com is exciting.”
Beginning with the first event Thursday of the 112th Drake Relays presented by Xtream, powered by Mediacom, and continuing through the final race Saturday, with the exception of 1-3 p.m. Saturday, RunnerSpace.com will air this year’s action. All events from the USATF.TV broadcasts will also be available for on-demand viewing.
RunnerSpace.com will broadcast live more than 100 events at this year’s Drake Relays during its 25 hours of live streaming.
“RunnerSpace has streamed the Drake Relays live since 2014, and while every year at the Blue Oval is a special one, we’re extremely excited to be back in Des Moines this week showcasing the world’s best track and field athletes while working with the Drake Relays and USATF.TV to share one of the world’s premier meets with fans everywhere,” Chief Marketing Officer at Runnerspace Scott Bush said.

About the Drake Relays
The Drake Relays presented by Xtream powered by Mediacom has served as “America’s Athletic Classic” since its first running in 1910. The annual competition, hosted by Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, is recognized internationally as a destination for the world’s premier track & field athletes across multiple professional and amateur divisions. In 2020, the Drake Relays was named a Silver Level event on the World Athletics Continental Tour, one of only two meets in the United States to earn Silver Level status. In addition to its signature stadium competition, the Drake Relays includes two marquee road running events open to the general public — the Grand Blue Mile presented by Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield and the Drake Road Races.
