TRACKTOWN USA AIMS HIGH WITH TRACK AND FIELD

INTRODUCING TRACKTOWN USA


TrackTown USA is track and field in the US!

Based in the iconic track city of Eugene, Oregon, the non-profit organization was founded with the goal of supporting the next generation of US track and field athletes as well as growing the sport of track and field on American soil.

The organization has an all-encompassing mission. It is responsible for organizing major track and field events such as the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships, the 2015 USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships, the 2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland, the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials—Track and Field and the 2021 IAAF World Track and Field Championships.

These events are crucial to supporting US track and field talent and allowing them to compete on home soil as world class athletes and showcasing the breadth of talent developing in the US.

The TrackTown USA mission extends beyond the elite with the goal to inspire the next generation of running and track and field athletes.

How do they do that? With the TrackTown Summer Series!

INTRODUCING THE TRACKTOWN SUMMER SERIES


Last year, TrackTown USA launched the TrackTown Summer Series to great acclaim. The 2017 Summer Series continues this celebration of running and offers the chance to see US talent on home soil as they compete for big prize money.

Athletes representing co-ed teams from Portland, San Francisco, New York City and Philadelphia will be competing for prize money and additional benefits in excess of a half-million dollars.

The TrackTown USA championship event will be held in New York this summer will be televised live on ESPN with the whole day as a huge run party and a chance to see and be inspired by amazing athletes up close.

JACKRABBIT AND THE TRACKTOWN SUMMER SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS IN NEW YORK

The runners will cross the finish line located right on the track at the impressive Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island Park, NY. Every runner will experience the feeling of running onto the track and feeling the energy where the elite athletes will race later on.
