Lolo Jones to run at the Drake Relays for $50,000 purse


Lolo Jones may be trying to help the U.S. bobsled team win a medal in the 2014 Olympics but that will not stop her from running in the upcoming Drake Relays in Des Moises, IA.

Jones will compete in the Drake Relays which take place from April 25-27th according to director Brian Brown. From 2005-2008 she won the 100-meter hurdles before losing the next three seasons. She pulled out of the event in 2012.

The race will pay a record $50,000 purse and will feature Kellie Wells and Dawn Harper as well as Jones. In total seven of the top-10 runners in the world will compete in the event.
