TrackTown Tuesday goes virtual!
The spread of the novel coronavirus and the resulting limits on public gatherings forced TrackTown USA to cancel the April and May shows of TrackTown Tuesday; with those restrictions still in place, we could not host the June 2nd season finale in its normal format.
However, a digital version of TrackTown Tuesday is now available to watch for free on TrackTown USA’s YouTube channel by clicking here!
Host Sasha Spencer Atwood interviews Johnny Gregorek about his Blue Jean Mile world record attempt, which is raising funds for the National Alliance on Mental Illness in honor of his brother, Patrick.
Nikki Hiltz shares her story as an out professional athlete and LGBTQ advocate. Hiltz and her teammates have put together the Golden Coast Track Club Pride 5k, a virtual race for which registration funds are going to The Trevor Project.
Student-athletes with the University of Oregon Track & Field program discuss their abruptly canceled seasons, and how they are looking forward as individuals and as a team. They also share beautiful new footage of Hayward Field at the University of Oregon.
Finally, the members of the Oregon Track Club Elite put together a video highlighting how their days have changed as a result of the coronavirus.
While these are extraordinarily challenging times, there are so many people in our sport doing incredible things. We hope this helps to share their stories with audiences in Oregon and throughout the country and world.
