sunday mornings 8-9 a.m. at hayward field
TrackTown Fitness is a free community fitness program based on concepts first taught by University of Oregon track and field coach Bill Bowerman more than 50 years ago. His community jogging classes are credited with sparking the running boom in the U.S. and we’re using those same principles to set the standard for a healthy community and state.
“TrackTown Fitness does not adhere to a one-size-fits-all mentality. Rather, it is designed to support individual goals in a supportive group environment.”

The program is under the direction of Coach Vin Lananna, who helped lead Team USA to a historic performance at the Rio Olympic Games as head coach of the U.S. men’s track & field team. Coach Lananna is excited to announce a 16 week TrackTown Fitness program in 2017 that will give participants the structure and motivation to achieve their fitness goals.
The program will run each Sunday morning from 8 – 9 a.m. at Hayward Field beginning January 15. There will be a focus on preparing everyone for the Eugene Marathon, Half Marathon & 5k on May 6 – 7, but everybody is welcome at TrackTown Fitness, whether you plan to participate in a Eugene Marathon event or not.
Bill Bowerman said that if you have a body, you’re an athlete. We take that concept seriously; TrackTown Fitness is welcoming and supportive of all ages and abilities and we can promise a fun, social, supportive environment for all. Whether you’re an experienced runner planning for a personal best, or TrackTown Fitness is the beginning of your journey to a healthier lifestyle, your goals will be respected equally.
