The participating clubs were Cheetah’s Track Club (STT), St. Thomas Track Club (STT), St. Croix Track Club (STX) and Jolly Roger Track Club (STX) and Mary’s Fancy Track Club (STX).

The event had the look of an exhibition as the call for participants would produce a limited number to fill out the disciplines.
