Summer of speed

There has never been anything like the World Athletics Championships Oregon 21

The pinnacle sporting event of the year deserves a stage unlike any other in the sport—an ultra-modern, world-class testament to human achievement that promises to be a favorite of fans and athletes alike. The new Hayward Field delivers on all fronts. It isn’t just the first stadium in the U.S. to host the World Athletics Championships; it’s the ultimate track and field experience. From sprints to the marathon to race walking, and from jumps to throws to multis, every event on the program is destined to have its moment in the Oregon sun.


When the world’s best gather, they push each other to set records, make history and change the trajectory of track & field—and human potential. When they gather in Eugene in 2021, they’ll breathe the history, inhale the atmosphere, and show us all just how breathtaking track & field’s future will be.
