Why Track and Field

pictureThere are many benefits to running track and participating on a track team. According to the CDC, approximately 17 percent of children and adolescents ages 2–19 are obese. Running burns fat and increases muscle tone, which contributes to better health.

In addition to the physical benefits of running, there are also psychological benefits. Most runners typically report being happier and feeling less stressed. Running releases endorphins and these hormones create a sense of euphoria often referred to as a runner’s high and can result in an improvement in the runner’s mood.

Being a member of a track team, whether you are in middle school, high school or college, is fun. Its exciting soaring through the air as you jump over a hurdle and crossing the finish line of a race seconds before the next person is bound to bring a smile to your face.
