The Newport Parks and Recreation Department will be holding a Hershey track and Field Local meet on June 5th at 5:00pm at the Newport High Track.
“Every HERSHEY’S Track & Field Games meet offers running events, like the 50-meter dash and the 800-meter run, and field events, like the softball throw and the standing long jump. And that’s just for starters. If you work hard enough and qualify in your events, you’ll get the chance to compete at the North American Final in Hershey, Pennsylvania. P.S. The trip to Hershey is totally FREE and you get to do a lot of cool things like go to Hersheypark, visit HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD Attraction, and tour HERSHEY’S state of the art chocolate factory.
If you’re between 9 and 14 years old and everything we said sounds pretty cool, you can sign up now for the HERSHEY’S track and field meet in Newport.
We will also offer 7 and 8 year olds the chance to compete, but they are not eligible to move on to regional competition as part of the national Hershey track and field program.
