High school students don’t normally get to compete in co-ed events as part of track and field meets but gender equity is the order of the day at the revived Acadia Relays.

The relays were held at Acadia University’s Raymond Field in Wolfville on May 3, featuring co-ed events, including the 2X1,600-metre and the 4X200-metre relays. There were a total of six team relay races, as well as the long jump, shot put and Special Olympics men’s and women’s 100-metre races.

This video features highlights from the Special Olympics races and the co-ed 2X1,600-metre relay.
