INDIANAPOLIS -- The Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships are returning to Des Moines, Iowa, July 25-28, 2019. The best track and field athletes in the country will compete at Drake University’s Drake Stadium on a quest to qualify for Team USATF at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar. The four day meet is the final stop of the 2019 USATF Outdoor Championship Series and will be broadcast on the NBC family of networks and webcast on NBC Sports Gold.

Tickets are available now at Draketix.com/USATF, including all-session (Thursday - Sunday) and single session. Youth (ages 3-18) and students (with a valid college student ID) may purchase $10 General Admission tickets on-site on event day. Offer valid Friday-Sunday sessions.

The 2010 and 2013 USATF Championships at Drake University provided a bevy of memorable moments, and 2018’s edition was another smashing success. Last year, athletes set one American record (DeAnna Price - women’s hammer throw), three world leads (Noah Lyles - men’s 100m, Maria Michta-Coffey - women’s 20k race walk and DeAnna Price - women’s hammer throw), two USATF Championship records (Keturah Orji - women’s triple jump, Maria Michta-Coffey - women’s 20,000m race walk) and 13 Drake Stadium records over the course of four days.

Drake has hosted the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in 1970 (men only), 2008, 2011, and 2012, and annually hosts the Drake Relays, which in 2019 will celebrate its 110th year.
