Coaches attending the convention couldn't wait to show off their TrackTown USA lanyards

I recently had the pleasure of attending the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Convention as a representative of TrackTown USA. With so many prestigious events coming up in 2014 coupled with the announcement that Eugene will host the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships through 2021, there’s no question that the title of "TrackTown USA" is well-deserved.

While we did answer a few questions at our convention booth, most of the coaches and attendees who stopped by simply wanted to tell us how much they loved Eugene and how important it was that we were helping take the sport of track and field to another level.
