Track and field athletes from both sides of the border will be competing at McLeod Athletic Park for the 33rd annual Pacific Invitational 2012 B.C. Masters Championships.

The three-day meet, which kicks off on Friday and runs until Sunday (June 17), is hosted annually by the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club.

Close to a 1,000 athletes are expected, competing from the junior developmental age group (born from 1999 to 2003), midget (1997-98), youth (1995-96), junior (1993-94), open (ages 20-34), and master’s (ages 35 and up). The master’s group  is split into five age groups.

And this year, for the first time, there is a little rascals division, for athletes ages 6, 7 and 8.
