NB3FIT Track kicked off the season at Volcano Vista High School on April 29 marking the first competitive meet for the majority of the team.

The NB3FIT program added track to its rotation in 2022 to provide youth another way to stay active until cross country returns in the fall. The sport also appeals to a different group of youth who may may like the short distances more than the longer cross country runs.

In an effort to reach more youth, NB3FIT established four different practice sites for families to choose from. Families have the option to attend the site nearest them with one being in Albuquerque, one in Bernalillo and two in pueblo communities.  The same curriculum is taught at all the practice sites and youth come together once a week to practice together.

With two meets in the book, the team is already showing bright futures ahead. NB3FIT has one of the largest teams in the area with youth competing in almost every category. There is a learning curve to track, and youth are becoming more comfortable with the rules and fundamentals as well as learning the importance of pacing themselves for different events.

Next on the schedule for NB3FIT Track is the Albuquerque Athletic Track Meet May, 20 at Eldorado High School. This year’s state race will take place on Saturday, June 10 at Cleveland high school followed by a regional race on July 8 and nationals in Eugene, Oregon on July 29!
