About The Event
The Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships event was founded in 2015 to continue on the tradition of the Hershey® Track and Field Games in Iowa. Like it’s predecessor, the Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships is a free, state wide event that requires no special equipment to participate. Partnering with parks and recreation departments and school districts throughout the state, local meets are hosted all around Iowa, giving participants a chance to compete in their hometowns. Local meet champions will have the opportunity to participate in the state meet held in Bondurant on Saturday, June 17, 2023.
