A visit to Hayward is a must for all track fans. World famous it is unlike any other track events. The stands are packed with cheering fans and you can feel the atmosphere. Unique in track. If you are here in the summer, there are "all comers" meets where anyone can participate. This gives you a chance to say you... More

This is a great historic venue that has seen some of the greatest athletes on earth preform on its hallowed grounds. I have been going to the Pre Classic for many, many years now and it has always offered an incredible experience for both the fans and the athletes. The access to the world class athletes is unrivaled in any... More

I have always wanted to see this historic track, so it was a highlight for me. Unfortunately the track itself was completely locked up and under construction when we were there. The infield was consumed with huge tents, so it was hard to see what I wanted.

I was fortunate enough to study at the University of Oregon on study abroad from Australia! This meant I was lucky enough to see Hayward Field every day, and it never lost its pearl. I wish that I could have been there for a track meet, but it was amazing to see it, and even better to walk on it.

I have been attending track meets here for 40+ years. The athletes are world class. The setting is beautiful. The meets are run precisely. The fans are knowledgeable and appreciative. At the USA Olympic Trial several years ago, I sat next to a Los Angles sports fan. At the end of a very exciting race, he said he had attended... More

Hayward Field is legendary, historic and has to be THE best place to watch and run in a track meet. The fans support great track and that makes it a magical place to run & watch:-) Only thing I would improve: more leg room in stands- small thing compared to the experience.

Went to Hayward Field for the last day of the World Junior Track & Field Championships after completing the Eugene Half Marathon in the morning. Hayward Field is known as Historic Hayward Field and Eugene is known as Track Town USA for good reason. The facility, of course, was dressed to the nines for the event, but one can tell... More
