USA Track & Field is the national governing body for the sport of track and field. The youth outdoor national championship is one of two (2) National Championships USATF is in charge of for the outdoor season for youth amateur athletes. The meet will be the first national championship for youth track and field in Durham. The meet will feature 8-18 year old males and females from across the nation. Durham is expected to host between 3,000-6,000 athletes for the 6-day event, with 200-300 of those athletes being from the Durham area and 300-500 being from the Triangle region. The goal of the Durham Sports Commission is to execute a well ran national championship, while showcasing Durham as a top-notch destination for current and future sporting events. The meet has a formal Local Organizing Committee that is charged with the operations of the meet, while the DSC Board of Directors are fiscally responsible.

RunJumpThrow (RJT) provides children ages 7-12 a fun chance to learn and practice the foundational skills of all sports – running, jumping, and throwing. These skills are the core of track & field and can be applied on the track or on nearly any other sport’s playing field.

The RunJumpThrow plan consists of activities organized into 20 stations and includes guidelines for operating a fun competition for kids to test their skills. This core plan is designed for non-technical event organizers or individuals who don’t have physical education degrees. The plan is described in plain language and includes an instructional video, available after organizers register to host a RunJumpThrow event.
