      EVENT DETAILS
      Newaygo County Senior Track & Field

      You are invited to participate in the Newaygo County Senior Track & Field. This is an olympic-esq competition with both individual and team events. ALL Newaygo County residents age 60 or older are invited to compete. It is FREE to participate! Teams will be comprised of resident’s living in a facility (Skilled Nursing Facility, Assisted Living, Independent Apartments, AFC, etc.) Each event will earn points for their respective team. Should an athlete not reside in a facility, they will be assigned a facility team. There will be individual awards for each event, as well as trophies for the winning facilities. These will be traveling trophies, which will need to be turned back in to the organizers at next year’s Games, but the individual medals will be keepsakes for the winning athletes. There will be a Men’s Division, and a Women’s Division.   The events are as follows: Wheelchair Race (individual - 50ft) Wheelchair Relay Race (team of 3 - 30ft each, 90ft total) Bean Bag Toss (individual - 4 bags) Golf Ball Hit (individual - 3 balls) Fowling (think bowling with a football - team of 2 - combined scores) Basketball Throw (individual - 60 seconds) Walker TUG (Timed Up and Go - individual) Independent TUG (Timed Up and Go - individual) Each athlete may enter only 2 individual events, and 1 team event. There will be a qualifying event held at each individual facility for anyone wanting to participate in the final Track & Field event at THS. There is no limit to the number of athletes that may sign up to participate in any given event. Deadline to sign up to participate is June 15th. Qualifying events will be set up after that date, with the final Newaygo County Senior Track & Field to be held Friday, September 13th at Transitional Health Services of Fremont.
