About this event

Calling all Oregon area middle and high school girls... We are bringing TrackGirlz to Track Town!! First 40 girls to register will be able to participate in the event free of charge, thanks to our grants sponsor, TEAM Springfield (City of Springfield, Springfield Public Schools, Springfield Utility Board, and Willamalane Park & Recreation District). Street Race Winners get tickets to watch the Saturday, June 26th Olympic Team Trials Track and Field session!

Participants get their chance to race on the official U.S. Olympic Team Trials Race Walk course in Springfield, OR on June 26th after the completion of the Team USA Olympic Trials Race Walk event. But get ready to go fast, racing in either the 100 meters or 200 meters in a fun and fast Street Race!

Race Check-in starts at 9:00 after the Race Walk has gone off at the Springfield City Hall Plaza, 225 Fifth Street. Participants will race the official Race Walk course along 5th Street and Main Street in Downtown Springfield. The City is suspending parking enforcement activities in Downtown Springfield to better accommodate event goers.

A short welcoming ceremony will precede the race, which begins at 10:00 a.m. An awards ceremony will be held at the Springfield City Hall Plaza immediately following the race.

TrackGirlz, in partnership with TrackTown USA and Willamalane, is hosting this event for middle and high school girls to come together to unify through sisterhood, empowerment, and track and field.

Participants will start with the 4-week speed training program designed by TrackGirlz Leaders, Olympian, Mechelle Lewis Freeman and Wellness Coach, Jennifer Nash Forrester, which includes three workouts each week. TrackGirlz will host weekly in person workout sessions onsite at Willamalane Park & Recreation Center in Springfield, OR on the following Thursdays at 4pm PST:

Each workout will feature University of Oregon Alumna and NCAA 8-time All American, Megan Petrignelli. All participants utilizing Willamalane Park & Recreation District Facilities must comply with OHA guidelines.

A gift bag will be given to all 40 participants in the June 26th Street Race. However, the top three finishers will receive special prizes. 10 middle school girls will be able to enter the 100 meters and 10 middle school girls in the 200 meters. 10 high school girls will be able to enter the 100 meters and 10 high school girls in the 200 meters.
