Track Series

2024 Series: June 6th, June 13th, June 20th, June 27th

The Track Series for 2024 is almost here. We are going to host 4 track meets. First one on Thursday June 6th - and finish on Thursday June 27th. This has always been an event we do to try to get kids interested in running track, and even just doing a few meets is better than not doing any at all. There are numerous other club sports and select teams doing things over the summer, but nothing that supports track. So we started doing the track series 20 years ago and it is an event that has seen some great runners throughout the years. Some of our records are outstanding — the 15-19 age division 400 meter men’s records is 47.83 — and the women’s 400 meter 15-19 age division record is 58.44. You can find the full record board here. You can find the application for the track series by clicking the button below.

But don’t let these amazing times scare you from showing up. We have all sorts of runners who come out. Some are in college and serious competitors and others are out there just to have fun running. Which is really what this is all about, just having fun running and getting kids interested in the sport of running. 

We always have a lot of fun, and the times are hopefully fast and full of PR's! We are look forward to seeing you out on the track this June!

Until then we invite you to join us at one of our other fun events. The Dash-n-Glow which is coming up in a few weeks and then we have the Great River Road Run coming up in November.
