The Howard Wood Dakota Relays has experienced phenomenal growth since the first one-day event was held May 4, 1923. Over the years it has become one of South Dakota's premier athletic events.
The 91st running of the Relays is scheduled for May 6 & May 7, 2016. More than 3,000 middle school, high school, college and university student athletes will be competing. The dedication of hundreds of volunteers, the financial support of area businesses and the outstanding facilities makes the Howard Wood Dakota Relays the meet of choice for many area track fans.
The Dakota Relays Gold Medal scholarship was established in 2000. The Howard Wood Dakota Relays Board of Directors created the scholarship to
reward South Dakota Track & Field student athletes of accomplishment who have chosen to continue participation in the sport at the collegiate
level in our State. Winners are announced during the Saturday session.
