2013 Downtown Events
Elite shot put (April 17, Wednesday)
Elite long jump (April 18, Thursday)
The Kansas Relays are delivering festive events to the community in historic downtown Lawrence. Lawrence is the only city in the US to hold these types of events in a downtown setting. Spectators have a chance to score free giveaways and witness Olympic athletes up-close (bring a pen for autographs). Big and Baby Jay will make appearances. Inflatables will be on hand during the shot put and a DJ will be present on both days to add to the fun.
Men’s Elite Shot Put (April 17th)
The world’s best shot putters will compete for the Kansas Relays downtown title. Six of the world’s top ten throwers were on hand last year. Be there to see Olympic Bronze Medalist Reese Hoffa and the rest of the shot put giants put on a show.
Time: 6-7 PM
Location: In between Massachusetts and New Hampshire on Eighth Street.
Women’s Elite Long Jump (April 18th)
Eight of the best lady long jumpers on the planet will showcase their amazing ability. These athletes can spring the distance of 22 feet. (That’s more than the distance between the basketball hoop and the three point line.) Olympic Bronze Medalist Janay Deloach was last year’s downtown champ.
Time: 6-7 PM
Location: In between Massachusetts and Vermont on Eighth Street
