Juneau, Alaska - Juneau-Douglas 2019 graduate Arne Ellefson-Carnes, now running at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, will be competing in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) Outdoor Track & Field Championships today and Saturday.
It is not often I get to write my own name IN a story instead of ON a story but he will run on KLAS FIELD.
The championships are at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. The university features a field, student center and cafeteria named after Robert and Alexandra Klas because they donated seven million dollars to Hamline for the facilities.
So Ellefson-Carnes will run on the KLAS field track.
I have run on the KLAS field track.
I snuck onto the football field during a visit there, midday, and just had to experience my name in lights. Afterwards I had a snack at Klas Cafe in KLAS Center.
So if you want to watch Arne Ellefson-Carnes run past the KLAS field sign 24 times in the Men’s 10,000 meters today at 2 p.m. then go to the following website: www.miacathletics.com and click on the MIAC Championships 2021 Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Championship Preview banner. He also races in the 5,000 tomorrow.
