DES MOINES, Iowa — Drake University has a new Drake Relays director.

Blake Boldon will replace Brian Brown, who held the position for 11 years before leaving for a job at Missouri.

The announcement was made Tuesday, but Boldon was officially introduced at a press conference Wednesday morning.

Boldon was previously the executive director of the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon.

An Iowa-native, Boldon won a state track title at Drake’s Blue Oval in the 1,600 meters in 1998 and also a Drake Relays title in the 1,500 meters in 2003 while competing for Missouri State.

The 2017 Drake Relays are scheduled for April 26-29.
