The 85th annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays held this past spring drew thousands of visitors to Austin to view track and field races featuring professional track stars and competitors from U.S. colleges and local high schools.

One of the featured highlights during this four-day event included a panel, sponsored by the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, with guest speakers representing the city of Austin, Austin Independent School District, university students, staff and alumni to discuss the present impact that race has in sports. UT-Austin alum Brian Jones said, “I think we need to continually discuss and explore the dialogue that is race and sports and the stigma of race and try to overcome that.”

Next year’s Texas Relays will take place from March 27-30, 2013 at Mike A. Myers Stadium.
