Why Track & Field?
The most foundational of all sports,
track & field is based on the three basic forms
of human movement – running, jumping and throwing.
Within the sport, there is an event for everyone, regardless of race,
gender, size, shape or ability. Just as important, the sport is inexpensive and accessible to everyone – all you need is a pair of shoes. A race, a throwing competition or a jumping contest can happen anywhere!

Something For Everyone!
Away from the competitive arena, the activities of track & field also provide the foundations of basic fitness. If kids engage in running, jumping and throwing, fitness will follow. Engaging in these activities improves children’s health and self-esteem. And done with friends, the movements are fun!

Easy Access
For event organizers, hosting a RunJumpThrow is simple. If you have access to an open space – a field, parking lot, gym or a track – you have a facility for RunJumpThrow. The only equipment needed is something to throw and, if you choose the hurdling station, some pizza boxes.
