Posted: September 30, 2012 - 12:09am
The "100 yards dash" during the 4th of July 1908, in Douglas. Note the front runner is in shorts with an "F" insignia on his shirt. Early fire department sports teams had F insignias, however, it is not known if this is a department runner. If you have any information on this photo or any other early sports in the area or other historical tidbits please call the Juneau Empire Sports Editor, Outdoors Editor, or Online Editor.
