World class track and field will make its long awaited return to the University of Guelph next Tuesday May 28th at the Speed River Inferno. Entering its fourth year, the meet is ready to take a major step forward from previous installments. After spending the past three years at the St James track, the meet has moved to a permanent home at the newly redone Alumni Stadium. Along with a new location the meet has brought on corporate partner New Balance. These two factors have contributed to incredible fields and what promises to be an outstanding evening of track and field. Included in the fields will be athletes representing five countries as well as five Olympians.
