What time does the 2022 Adam Sanford Pro & Classic event starts?
Before the calendar turns to the outdoor track and field season, pro and elite athletes will get one more opportunity to compete at The Armory’s New Balance Track and Field Center in Upper Manhattan during Sunday’s Adam Sanford Pro races.
This professional section will run from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. and feature seven events before transitioning to the open portion of the meet, which all adults are eligible to compete.
“After the Millrose Games and Dr. Sander Invitational, this will be the third pro event at The Armory this season,” said Jonathan Schindel, Armory Foundation Co-President.
“We are excited to welcome these tremendous athletes as they prepare for the World Indoor Championships later this month, and we want to thank meet directors Adrian Crichlow and Paul Doyle for their efforts to make this possible.”
