  • Big Ten Indoor Track and Field Championships return to SPIRE Institute this weekend

    GENEVA, OHIO - The 2016 Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Indoor Track and Field Championships returns to SPIRE Institute in Geneva for the fourth consecutive year. SPIRE’s world class indoor track facility – which includes an 8-lane, 300 meter track – has allowed the Big Ten to hold both its men’s and women’s championship at the same facility for the first time.

    The Big Ten has continued to select Northeast Ohio to host its Indoor Track and Field Championships due to the world-class facility and the partnership between SPIRE Institute and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. The event infuses $350,000 into the regional economy annually and has created $1.4 million in economic activity since coming to Northeast Ohio in 2013.

    The championships will begin Friday, February 26 and conclude Saturday, February 27. The meet begins at 10 a.m. each day. The championship presentation is scheduled for Saturday at 4:50 p.m.

    The Championships features both men’s and women’s teams from the Big Ten’s 14 member schools competing for individual and team championships. The Nebraska men and the Ohio State women are the defending champions.
