The Oregon based TrackTown Youth League has already held meets in Hermiston, Hillsboro, Newberg and North Portland with many exciting races and just as much fun. This week's schedule includes Coos Bay on Wednesday and Medford this Sunday.
To catch up here are the Results so far:
Sign up forms are available in English and Spanish.
All of the meets are FREE and open to kids 7-14 that would like to try and compete in the 100m, 400m, 1500m, long jump and turbojav. If this will be your first track meet it's ok, there are lots of kids that are coming out for the first time! Athletes of all abilities are welcome, including wheelchair athletes.
What's really cool is that you can qualify for the "Championship" meet on Saturday, June 10th following the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon. That means you will get to compete against other kids from around the state in the same stadium where Olympians have run their best times and even set world records.
If your friends and relatives are unable to come to Eugene to watch there will be a Live Webcast so everyone that wants to can see the action as it happens.
