The City of Maupin & the Maupin Area Chamber Endowment (MACE) Deschutes River Athletic Complex (DRAC) are sprinting toward completing an amazing world class Track & Field Athletic Complex in the Spring of 2021. After breaking ground August 2020, you can now join us as we gather speed into the Fall & Winter of 2020. Our goals are to host our first track & field events in the Spring of 2021, aligned with the US Olympic Trials in the Summer of 2021 and then to bring athletes from around the world to the Oregon2022 World Track & Field Championships in Maupin, OR!#authenticoregon22

Highlights From Our Celebration

Our “Let’s Just Build a REAL Track” Fundraising Campaign goal was to raise $400,000 ($250,382 raised to date) to finish track in Spring of 2021 and then to raise another $1,500,000 to finish the entire complex.
