The 49th Annual All Island Track Meet for 4th and 5th graders from Mercer Island elementary schools will be held on Friday, June 14th from 1 to 3:30 pm at the Mercer Island High School Stadium.

Athletes from each school are chosen to compete in a variety of events including long jump, softball throw, shot put, 50-meter dash, 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash, and a co-ed relay. Schools can also win the “Spirit Award”, the award for “Loudest Fans,” or the award for “Best Sportsmanship.” The event is free, and everyone is invited to come out and cheer for your favorite school or athlete!

Mercer Island Parks and Recreation has hosted this fun community event in past years. With the recent reductions in the City of Mercer Island’s budget, the track meet was cancelled for this year; however, the Mercer Island Boys & Girls Club has agreed to take on coordination of the event with the support of sponsorship from real estate brokers at Windermere Real Estate – Mercer Island. This long-standing tradition on Mercer Island continues!
