Track & Field Facilities

Track and field is taken seriously here in the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region — after all, Eugene is TrackTown USA!

We’ve hosted many major track and field events including the Prefontaine Classic, Division I NCAA Track & Field Championships and the U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Track & Field, all multiple times. In 2022, we will hosted the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon — the first time this acclaimed international event was held in the U.S. 

From small to big, from sprints to marathons; our community turns out to support running events with enthusiasm, both volunteering and cheering! And athletes will enjoy our region's many scenic running paths along with the tributes to track history throughout the city.

Want to add your track and field event to this esteemed list? Your athletes will love the opportunity to compete on Coach Bill Bowerman and Steve Prefontaine’s turf!
