What Is Athletics (Track and Field)?

Athletics offers a wide variety of traditional track and field events. Competition is also provided for athletes with lower ability levels in a variety of development track and field events.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate.

Athletes in Illinois who compete in athletics compete locally at their Region Spring Games. Gold medal winners are eligible to advance to the state championship held at the Summer Games in Normal in June.
