Track and Field is one of the oldest competitive sports that we have, dating back to the ancient Greeks.  In the Delaware Senior Olympics we conduct track meet designed to give as many Senior Olympians as possible a chance to qualify for the National Senior Games.

Our meet includes sprints, middle distance runs, jumping and throwing events. Competition has been held at Delaware State University for the past several years. With the University’s excellent facilities and the outstanding support given by the members of the track team, our meet has become one of the premier events in the Delaware Senior Olympics program.
