PENN RELAYS INFO
I'm reposting some info here:
1.) here is the CYO Night at the Penn Relays Program. Make sure you print yours out, they will not be available on site.
2.) We will run in the rain, so long as it is safe. We will stop for thunderstorms/lightening in the area. UPenn has lightening dectectors and will let us know when we may resume.
Here is the information I posted earlier in the season. Everyone I've talked to has said it is a zoo down near Franklin Field because of the multiple construction zones, so please plan accordingly! Directions to Franklin Field can be found using a the Google Maps link on the right.
Entrance: The only open entrance will be the South Street entrance across from the SEPTA station because...
Seating - The North stands will be under construction and closed to the public up till the start of the Penn Relay's Thursday events. Traditionally CYO teams & fans have sat in the North stands (along the homestrech to the finish line) on Tuesday night. This will not be an option. The South stands (2nd leg) and the East Stands (3rd leg turn) will be open.
Food - Spectators can bring food in clear plastic bags, and plastic water bottles and juice boxes. Food will be available from Penn's 3 new concession stands under the South Stands. Merchandise will also be available.
Entrance to Paddock - Athletes will be able to access the paddock from the pathway underneath the scoreboard.
Bathrooms - Bathrooms under the South Stands will be accessible. The North Stands bathrooms no longer exist.
Parking Lot - The parking lot adjacent to the Stadium is gone. Here is a map of available lots.
As in the past, CYO and UPenn are advising people to use the Septa Regional Rail to University City if possible. The station is right across the street from the South Stand entrance.
