The 2X1,600 relay will see a boy and girl from each school each run a 'metric mile' around the track against other teams, in whichever order they choose.
In previous years, "volunteers had to spend hours getting the venue ready to support the meet," whether it be districts or regionals.
As a result, the NSSAF district and regional track and field meets will both be held at Acadia this year the districts May 15 16 and the regionals May 24 25.
"The whole idea behind the new infrastructure," Wohlmuth said, was not only to be able to hold track and field competitions at Acadia, "but also to support the high schools in Kings County."

and a new facility, which became Beazley Field in Dartmouth, was being built for the 1969 Canada Summer Games.

Foot points out the initiative to resurrect the event began about five years ago, when Field Turf and an all weather running track were installed on Raymond Field.
Wohlmuth stressed the revival of the Acadia Relays "wouldn't have happened without a high level of co operation between a lot of people and organizations."
