Experience the Place Where it All Began

Join SRG Partnership Principals Jeff Yrazabal and Aaron Pleskac for a private tour of the world’s finest Track & Field Stadium, Hayward Field at the University of Oregon. This reimagined, state-of-the-art venue is inspired by the rich history of UO’s Track & Field program, its world-class athletes, and the spirit and legacy of inspiring game-changers like Nike co-founder and storied Oregon coach Bill Bowerman, track star and cultural icon Steve Prefontaine, and many others that together make this site “magic.” Generously funded by Phil and Penny Knight and over 50 additional donors, Hayward Field builds on this legacy by both acknowledging the past while providing a bold vision for the future.

Designed and built for athletes in every way imaginable, this tour will highlight the unique features and amenities throughout the facility that aim to enhance performance, training, and recovery, as well as enhancing the experience and intimacy between athletes and fans.

After the tour, lunch and refreshments will be served. Proceeds will benefit The Architecture Foundation of Oregon in its mission to educate, inspire, and engage Oregonians with the built environment.

Freshen your connections. Get inspired. Celebrate this impressive achievement.
