JEROME INDOOR MEET TO INTRODUCE RACE WALKING EVENT
By Brian Pound
Will the next big British Columbia race walking name emerge from the Harry Jerome Indoor Meet presented by TELUS on February 4 at the Richmond Olympic Oval?
Compliment Race Walk West Developmental coach Bob Solmes for the idea. He approached Achilles International Track Society vice chair with the idea of inserting an all-age 1500 metre race walk into the Jerome Indoor program for athletes including elementary and high school age, with the aim to promote race walking in the lower mainland.
