Not wanting to detract from Bay to Breakers, PWA president Butch Curry and host Kevin Doherty magnanimously changed the date of the 2006 Northern California Open.
Ken Clark - 100% born and raised as a Northern California weightlifter - was part of the powerhouse Sports Palace team in the 1980s. Ken's career included winning national championships and representing the USA at both the Olympics and the world championships. Here, Ken is just starting his warmups at the 1990 Worlds (Budapest, Hungary). Lift at the Lincoln meet and you might be able to follow in Ken's footprints. IronMind® | Randall J.

Still set for Lincoln High School, the new date is May 20th, so this way, if you want to, you can lift heavy on Saturday and then run hard on Sunday.
