Big Track Meet in Bend This Week


Many kids in Bend will be experiencing their first track meet tomorrow.  The popular Hershey's Track and Field meet is a basic introduction to track and field. Rick Ekman, a Sports Coordinator with the Bend Parks and Recreation Department says the free track meet is for boys and girls who are between 9 and 14 years old, and will be held at Bend High School. "Basic introduction to track and field and it’s a regional and national event so the winners will advance to the state meet which is something exciting this year because the state meet is going to be held at Hayward field - just a week after the U.S. Olympic Trials in track; so the kids can watch the trials and then compete on the same track if they win here in Bend." Hayward Field is in Eugene at the U of O and is one of only four Class 1 Internationally Certified Tracks in the United States.  The local track meet in Bend usually has the highest participation numbers in Oregon, with about 200 athletes on average. Field events begin at 4:00 pm / running events begin at 5:30 p.m. 1st place finishers in each category will advance to the state finals meet.
