The 1st George and Whitey King 4 x 1600 Relay
Saunders Stadium, South Boston MA

Only the HFC Striders answered the challenge of the first annual George and Whitey King 4 x 1600 
meter relay at the new South Boston track facility.  

Named in honor of the Boston brothers who were top middle distance runners at Boston English HS 
in the 1950's and who continue in the sport as officials, George, was part of a US record setting
4 x 1500 relay in 1956, and Whitey was the event starter for the evening.  

The teams were joined by Uta Pippig, who warmed up and cooled down with the runners, and 
ran a few 400 legs on a undermanned pick-up foursome.  

Harpoon Brewery sponsorship provided a growler of beer and set of glasses to the winning teams.
