This time of year Eugene really lives up to it’s nickname, Track Town, USA. Eugene Marathon weekend has been a highlight for 8 years now, and this year it’s extra special as the Oregon Twilight Meet kicks things off at 3:00 p.m. at Hayward Field today.
If you made it to Eugene early, get to the Oregon Twilight Meet to watch Team Eaton; Ashton Eaton will run the Men’s 100 and 400 Meters, and Brianne Thiesen-Eaton will run the Women’s 200m. A handful of other Olympians will be racing as well, including Andrew Wheating in the Men’s 800m (his first race at Hayward since 2013), Geena Gall-Lara in the Women’s 1500m and Bryshon Nellum in the Men’s 400m. Kids 12 and under are free, so take the family out for an incredible evening of Track and Field events at Hayward!
