Registration Wednesday for summer youth track

Summer track registration is coming up this week, just as the high school tracksters wrap up the prep season at the state championships.

The Glenwood Springers Track Club, a summer track club with a focus on youth, will be back on track this year with a pair of familiar names at the helm.

This summer, local track standouts Chas Salmen and Gus Lundin, will coach the Glenwood Springers.

Salmen just finished his decorated high school career at Glenwood Springs High School. He raced in his final prep state meet on Saturday at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood.

Salmen will attend Duke University next fall where he will run cross country and track.

He will be joined by former GSHS teammate Lundin. The two teamed to win a state championship in the 4×800 relay two years ago.

Lundin has gone on to the University of Colorado, where he is a member of the Buffs’ NCAA Division I track team.

The two coaches will work with the youth tracksters as they compete in a summer schedule of area and regional meets, including qualifying meets for the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics and National Championships.

Registration for the Glenwood Springers Track Club will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, at the Glenwood Springs Middle School in West Glenwood.

The summer track and field club is open to girls and boys ages 8-18.
