The TTYL Trackmobile made it to almost every corner of the beautiful state of Oregon this May- Hillsboro, Coos Bay, Warrenton, Willamina, Medford, La Grande, Salem, Eugene, East Portland, Klamath Falls, Bend, and Hermiston! All in all nearly 2,300 kids participated in TrackTown Youth League regional meets this year. Thank you to all of our TrackTown Youth League participants and fans for helping us grow the reach of TTTYL year after year! Here are some of our favorite moments from this past month:

Visiting Pre's track. Did you know Marshfield High School, three-time host of our Coos Bay meet, was the high school of none other than Legendary Steve Prefontaine himself? Of course the TTYL Trackmobile had to take a field trip to the amazing new Pre mural in downtown Coos Bay after an epic meet.

Hosting our first ever meet in Willamina. We were so wowed to see 120 kids come out to Willamina High School to experience their first ever TTYL meet, and we had an awesome time working with the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and the Willamina Track Team to host the meet. Go Bulldogs!

Hitting a new meet size record in East Portland. 233 athletes participated in our David Douglas meet. We loved seeing both local track clubs and individual athletes come together to represent Portland at our biggest meet of the season. 

Seeing true grit and determination in Klamath Falls. Klamath Falls hands down won our rainiest meet of the year, but the chilly weather and thunder looming in the distance did not stop our Southern Oregon athletes from giving it their all. We even saw the season's fastest 100 meter time in Klamath Falls, from 14 year old Aiden Kindt, who ran a quick 11.50.


Other season event records across TTYL included:
100m female: Lily Jones, Portland, 12.53
400m male: Evan Gonzales, Salem, 52.72
400m female: Anna Belding, Baker City, 1:04.00
1500m male: Evan Gonzales, Salem, 4:19.73
1500m female: Kate Peters, Lake Oswego, 5:08.10
Long Jump male: Kaiden Weatherstorm, Coos Bay, 18'01"
Long Jump female: Sophia Beckmon, Oregon City, 15'7.5"
Turbo Javelin male: Thomas Reiber, Coos Bay, 119'7"
Turbo Javelin, female: Kyeese Hollands, Portland, 121'09"
