FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The nationally ranked Arkansas men’s and women’s track and field teams are on a mission to find the ‘Fastest Kid in Fayetteville.’
The Razorbacks welcome children ages 6-12 to participate in a 100-meter dash race at the upcoming John McDonnell Invitational on Saturday, April 22 at 4 p.m. CT at John McDonnell Field.
Parents can register their children for the event by clicking HERE. All interested participants are required to register by 5 p.m. CT on Monday, April 17. Further information about the event will be sent out following your registration.
Every child entered in the race will receive an official Arkansas track and field ‘Fastest Kid in Fayetteville’ t-shirt and an autographed spring poster, signed by our men’s and women’s All-Americans.
The races will be divided into two age groups with 6-9 and 10-12. The 6-9 age group will compete first with nine children racing at a time. The 10-12 age group will begin directly after and will also feature nine children racing at a time. Upon completion of both age groups, medals will be awarded to the fastest boy and girl in each age group. Men’s head coach Chris Bucknam and women’s head coach Lance Harter will present the fastest overall performer with a trophy prior to the start of the collegiate races.
All competitors are encouraged to hang out and cheer on their favorite Razorback after the awards presentation.
