I RUN BEST WHEN I RUN FREE. - STEVE PREFONTAINE
WELCOME TO TRACKTOWN, USA
Join Nike for an unforgettable trip to Eugene, Oregon to witness running on its biggest stage. Meet Nike Elites before they take on the sport's brightest stars at the Prefontaine Classic: the most prestigious annual track meet in the world. Enjoy access to the same state-of-the-art athletic facilities that have served as training grounds for decades of world-class athletes. Nike's top coaches and trainers will lead you in a mix of fun, specialised workouts that will get you moving like never before.
THE BEST OF THE BEST
You’ll sit in the iconic grandstands of Hayward Field for the year’s most competitive track meet, and watch decorated athletes from every corner of the globe. Named in honour of distance legend Steve Prefontaine after his passing in 1975, the Prefontaine Classic has seen countless record-setting races and gut-wrenching performances worthy of its namesake. Each year, a formidable field lines the start of every event. And with seasoned stars like Ashton Eaton, Allyson Felix, Kenenisa Bekele and Matt Centrowitz competing each year, no race is slow, and no record is safe.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Pieces of Nike Running’s rich history are everywhere in Eugene. Sit along the homestretch of Hayward Field, where legendary Oregon track coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman tested his first waffle soles. Run on Pre’s trail, where the soul of Nike - Steve Prefontaine - logged countless miles on his way to becoming an Oregon and American distance running icon. It only takes one trip to Eugene to see how it has inspired over 40 years of Nike innovation, and why it remains a sacred place for runners everywhere.

If the Nike+ community runs 25,000 kilometres by the end of the pledging period, Nike's donation to Healthy Moves will double from $25,000 to $50,000.
