The Penn Relay Carnival

The Penn Relays officially kicked off yesterday, and gets going in earnest tomorrow morning at 10 am. This is the 112th year for the Penn Relay Carnival (I never knew the official name included the word Carnival until today when I took a look at their website). Over the course of Friday, Saturday and Sunday there will be more 33 hours of competition, which they say, works out to more than one race every five minutes.

What the Penn Relays mean for the rest of us who are not attending or competing is that the area around Franklin Field is going to be overwhelmed with people and cars for the next couple of days. Parking will be at a minimum. If you have to come out to Penn or Drexel in the next couple of days, it is highly recommended that you take public transportation, or be prepared to park very, very far away.
