Parking
Fans are strongly encouraged to visit W&M and Williamsburg to cheer on the athletes at the Colonial Relays. As seen on the campus map (above), parking is available in the W&M Hall Lot, roughly a quarter-mile northwest of Zable Stadium and adjacent to the Stimson Throwing Events Area. All spaces in the Hall Lot are monitored by campus parking, and carry a $0.50 per hour charge. When parking, please note the number of your parking space (painted on the ground at the entrance to the space), and input that number along with the appropriate money at the parking kiosk located on the side of the lot closest to W&M Hall.

W&M will be providing a live video broadcast of the Colonial Relays once again, with coverage of selected events both Friday and Saturday. The cost for a single day's viewing is $5.95, or a weekend pass can be bought for $9.95.

All-American meeting
The Colonial Relays annually attracts a strong crop of All-Americans and national champions, and this year is no exception. Forty-four current All-Americans are entered in this weekend's meet, with Shippensburg's Matt Gillette (six honors) and Georgetown's Chelsea Cox (five) as the most-honored. In total, entered athletes account for 74 All-American certificates. Local favorite Elaina Balouris (Allison Park, Pa.), a two-time All-American, will represent W&M in the 5,000m on Friday night.

The relays should be especially exciting, as the Villanova men (fifth place indoors in Division I) go up against Shippensburg, the Division II national champions in the distance medley relay. In the women's DMR, Georgetown brings in three out of four runners who took sixth at the national meet, while Virginia State's eighth-place men's 4x400m relay is also scheduled to compete.
