In July 2022, Eugene will host the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 event. The 10-day event will bring this world competition for track and field to Eugene and to the United States for the very first time.
Eugene has a long history of hosting world-class track and field events, and our tradition and reputation as TrackTown USA makes our community and state the perfect first place in the United States to host the World Championships.
The City of Eugene’s goal for hosting the World Athletics Championships is to both welcome and inspire the world by showcasing the best of what Eugene and Oregon have to offer. The stories below highlight how our city is leveraging the event to make our community a better place to live, work, and play. #InspireTheWorld #Eugene22
