The esteemed event will bring more than 2,000 athletes from 200-plus countries to compete at one of the finest running tracks in Eugene, Oregon, known as TrackTown USA.

The event will be held at University of Oregon’s newly renovated Hayward Field, full of state-of-the-art facilities for athletes and coaches and seating for up to 30,000 spectators.
