The Track Series is an event we do to try to get kids interested in running track. 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 17 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 — the rest of the records can be found here.

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 had a lot of fun this year, despite having a few bad weather days. But nevertheless the times were fast and we are already looking forward to next years Track Series in June of 2018.
