On July 7th, 2012, in sunny San Diego, CA, and with the Olympic Games looming in London, Balboa Stadium will be host to an elite Track and Field meet. The return of high level Track and Field competition to the stadium will be a return to glory for the city that has faded since the late 60′s and 70′s.
Balboa Stadium’s past is ripe with athletic, historical significance. It was the original home of the San Diego Chargers, was the site of Jim Ryun’s high school and U. S. open mile record of 3:55.3, and it is still the home track for the San Diego Track Club.
The Balboa Track Championships will officially bring elite Track and Field back to San Diego. In addition to an elite field, the event will also host national level high school, club, corporate, and all-comers competitions.
