youth track meets

Hi! Does anyone know of any youth track meets? There used to be one in Philly every August but it doesn't appear to be happening this year. Looking for something on a track with events like the 200-2 mile. Thank you!

Re: youth track meets

Hey Shanley.

It's good to hear from you. Offhand, I do not know of any youth track meets. I feel like I've received some emails about this type of event in the past, but I have not seen anything like this recently. If I do see something I'll let you know.

Hi Shanley,
You may be referring to the Wissahickon Wanderer's track meets at Roxborough High School track on a Tuesday evening in August. I'm not sure of the current details but knowing the name of the club and their website ( might get you in the right direction.
