Save the Track

Congratulations! We have SAVED THE TRACK!

This is an exciting time for the Rochester community and the youth of Olmsted County. Our team has been working diligently with the Park staff, Park Board and community members to save our historic track. Their hard work and talent made this possible. THANK YOU to all of you who have supported the effort. Without this community support, we would not have been heard.

The next steps are to finalize the track design and to continue fundraising. We've been given a timeline, to have everything finished up by Rochesterfest 2020. We'll have to move quickly!

The Rochester Track Club has set a fundraising goal of $50,000! We have a great start but need your help to complete this important mission. The proceeds will be used to fund costs that are necessary to complete a new natural surface track while working in conjunction with the Rochester Park Department! How thrilling to ensure, with our efforts,  this track will benefit people of all ages and abilities, including our children, grandchildren, and generations thereafter.

The Save the Track Organization is acting on behalf of the Rochester Track Club, which is the sole beneficiary of gifts received. On a special note, the Hal Martin All-Comers’ Track Meets will be celebrating it’s 50th Year in 2020, and look to continue at Soldier’s Field Track with your gift!

Please continue to help with your generous donations and support in completing this historic adventure with our team!
