Some interesting concepts. Let's see what the crowd turnout is and see if it can gain momentum. I like the idea and the IAAF World Relays https://www.iaaf.org/competitions/iaaf-world-relays https://www.iaaf.org/news/preview/bolt-set-to-ignite-nitro-series-in-melbourne "There will be innovation in the event structure, too. Individual sprints will be over 60, 150 and 300m. The mile race on the first night will be enlivened with a ‘devil-take-the-hindmost’ rule under which the last runner drops out each completed lap. A 3-minute distance challenge, in which a woman runs as far as she can for three minutes before handing over to a male teammate to do the same thing, will feature on all three nights. Relays – both medley and traditional 4x100 and 4x400 – will be run as mixed teams, men and women."
