It’s going to be a busy day for South Jersey athletes at the 113th annual Millrose Games.
A huge slate of South Jersey athletes and alums are entered in Saturday’s Millrose, the oldest indoor track meet in the world.
This will be the 9th year Millrose will be held at the Armory on 168th Street after being held at the various Madison Square Gardens since 1914.
Here’s a minute-by-minute look at what to expect from South Jersey’s runners, jumpers and throwers! (Actually, there are no South Jersey jumpers competing this year and only one thrower. But it does sound better!)
