There's not too much to say about this place. It's nothing special. It's part of the University of Oregon college athletes. Not really a tourist place unless you know someone going to that college.

Just attended day 1 of NCAA track and field championships. Historic setting and its history we documented throughout stadium by markers. Not a bad seat in the house. Staff courteous and knowledgeable. Only complaint was very high concession prices. Could be due to it being an NCAA event. But well organized. Great experience for any Pre fan or a fan... More

The only reason I did not give this an excellent rating is the bathrooms are miserable. They hold major track meets here. The crowd is wonderful. The venue is fantastic. The score board is the best. I can't believe they didn't invest in adequate facilities.

Frequently hosts the Olympic Trials, and the yearly Prefontaine Classic are highly recommended. So much history in this place!

This is THE MUST SEE ATTRACTION if you go to Oregon and you are remotely interested in track and field. Even the All comers meets have a magical mystical feel to them and are run on fridays in august. The Steve Prefontaine accident site/memorial is located just a few blocks away on Hendricks Hill. On most quiet evenings the patter... More

This is the mecca of track and field, so if you have any interest at all in that sport, go see it. If you can manage to see it when an event is taking place, even better. You'll never be in a more exciting atmosphere for a track and field event (except, maybe, the Olympics). I watched the Olympic Trials... More

I was at Hayward Field for the 2012 US Olympic Trials for Track & Field. There are few things like watching the best in the world compete at a sport, watching world records being smashed, and doing it all with a great group of people. Not long before that, I brought my college-age goddaughter here to run on the track... More

A both classic and contemporary sports track and field! The location is great, as well as the openness and accessability. AS well as its history!

The Boston Marathon for track runners, Hayward Field boasts a history of records, runners and coaches unmatched anywhere in North America. All-comers meets are organized in the summer, giving wannabe track stars the opportunity to run the same track as many greats, thanks to the Oregon Track Club (at three dollars for up to three events, it's the best bang...
