Registration open for Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships

Register now through Thursday, May 10, 2018, for the Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships.

The Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships event was founded in 2015 to continue the tradition of the Hershey® Track and Field Games in Iowa. Like its predecessor, the Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships is a no-fee state-wide event that requires no special equipment to participate. Local meets are hosted all around Iowa, giving participants a chance to compete in their hometowns. Local meet champions will have the opportunity to participate in the state meet held in Marshalltown.  

The Iowa City event, hosted by Iowa City Parks and Recreation, will be held on Friday, May 18 at Raffensperger Track, Bates Field (City High), located at 1900 Morningside Drive. The track will open at 5 p.m. for warm-ups; races begin at 5:45 p.m.

Youth must be age 9-14 to participate. Participants must compete in his/her age division based off of what age the participant is as of December 31, 2018. All athletes must reside in Iowa, and can only participate in one local meet or they will be disqualified from meet in-progress and shall not advance to the state competition.

Volunteers are needed! Iowa City Parks and Recreation is looking for volunteers to help with the meet. If you are interested, contact Matt Eidahl at
