We have an exciting opportunity for you to witness some world-class track and field just down the road in Eugene. The Prefontaine Classic is part of the professional Diamond League circuit and it is one of the premier track and field events in the world every year. This year we are offering free tickets on a first come first served basis to BTC youth athletes and their parents. The meet this year will take place on Friday and Saturday, May 25th and 26th, with most of the program taking place on Saturday. Initially we would like to limit the tickets to a maximum of 1 parent per athlete so we can offer the opportunity to as many youth athletes as possible. We a handful of BTC Pros racing, we are hoping to have a good cheering section together!
If you are interested, please check out the links to the meet schedule below and sign up on the form. We do not know exactly how many tickets we will have but it will be roughly 50. Again, tickets will be on a first come, first served basis. Signing up does not guarantee you have a ticket. We will follow-up and confirm the list we a able to provide tickets for early next week. If you are interested, please sign-up ASAP.
We are also looking into the possibility of providing a bus for transportation down and back on Saturday (would miss Friday races). The bus would leave Portland/Beaverton around 8:30 am and return around 7:30 pm. Please indicate on your sign-up form if you would be interested in a bus.
