The Bowerman Track Club is an Oregon-based running group inspired by legendary coach Bill Bowerman, and organized similarly to traditional British running clubs where all levels of competitive athletes; from youth to elite to masters, are joined together as one team.
For our youth members we offer a Cross Country program during the fall. The BTC XC program runs from the start of September through the end of November. Youth members meet for practice 3 times a week and have the opportunity to compete on the local, regional and national level. We currently do not offer a similar program for the spring/summer track season but are exploring this as an option. For more info visit our Youth Page.
For post-collegiate runners, our BTC Elite program offers those still competing on a national caliber level a chance to continue pursuing their goals with other elite level athletes. For more info about the Elite program, visit the Elite Page.
Our BTC Pro group is composed a small group of top-level athletes competing on the national and international level. These athletes compete on the track, road and cross country scene in distances ranging from 800m to the marathon. Learn more about the out Pro runners on the Pro Page.
For families, we offer a couple different events throughout the year, including the Bowerman 5k and the August 3k Series.These events are a great way for the entire family to enjoy running together and meet some other BTC members.
