Hayward Field, Eugene

4.7
The centerpiece of 'Track Town, USA', Hayward Field attracts athletes, coaches and fans from thousands of miles away because of its renowned crowds well-versed in the sport and ready to roar in approval. Hayward Field's historic, covered grandstands are equally beloved, and comparable to many famous European venues. The 'Carnegie Hall' for American track and field plays host annually to the nation's finest single-day track and field contest, the Prefontaine Classic, which features the top mix of national and international talent on American soil each year.

The University of Oregon’s fabled track and field-only facility is named for the first of several legendary coaches, Bill Hayward, who guided the University of Oregon’s men’s team from 1904-1947.

Hayward Field was initially constructed for football in 1919. Two years later, a six-lane cinder track was installed and a full schedule of track events were transferred from Kincaid Field on the opposite edge of campus. The facility was utilized for both sports until the opening of Autzen Stadium in 1967.

The stadium (current capacity: 10,500) has undergone significant improvements in modern history, including a new track surface, permanent lights, a video board and newly configured infield.
Hayward Field is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Eugene Edition.

  • I was here working on the new field. It is absolutely amazing!!! No expense spared, it is gonna be beautiful.
  • Hayward was the best, but they demolished it to put in a new, Olympic level track. I'm sure the new one will be nice, but Historic Hayward will always have a special spot in the eugene community's heart
