Indoor Running & Field Events Center to open in the DFW Area in January 2023!

Almost one year to the day to its arrival in the state of Texas, RunRite will open the doors of a location to provide opportunities for athletes to compete in the sport of track and field indoors this coming January! this milestone marks an exciting opportunity for athletes in the DFW area. This location will host The Indoor Track & Field League's year-round meets, camps and clinics, open to individuals and teams.


Over the years, many hurdlers, sprinters, field event athletes, and distance runner have travelled to Houston, Lubbock, Arkansas, Alabama and Oklahoma, while other athletes have skipped the indoor season all together. The cost associated with traveling to out of town meets keeps many athletes from traveling. Families can expect to spend hundreds of dollars in meet entry fees, hotels, meals, and gas expenses just to watch one of their kids compete for a few seconds. RunRite's Grapevine location will allow athletes to sleep in their own beds and wake up to travel less than an hour to compete in this centrally located site. For less than the cost of traveling to one out of town meet, families can watch their athletes compete indoors for an entire season.

LEAGUE MEETS:

Distance runners get a full cross country season and an outdoor track season to develop their skills in running. However, the seven-week outdoor high school season and even shorter middle school track schedules in the state of Texas provides athletes especially in the sprints and field events with limited opportunities to improve each year.


In the Indoor Track & Field League, individual athletes and teams may register for a single meet. Athletes may also compete weekly for the entire season over 8 to 10 weeks in a maximum of seven (7) meets including an in house Indoor Track & Field League State Championship Meet.


These short season schedules provide athletes with the opportunity to compete in order to stay healthy and continue improving while reducing their risk of injuries. Season will be offered in the Fall, Winter, Spring (for elementary and middle school athlete) with an offering for indoor track and field meets for athletes looking to beat the heat in a climate controlled environment.

We created a family friendly meet schedule with assign competition times. During the season,

  • Younger athletes (2nd through 6th grade) will compete in the mornings

  • Older athletes (7th through 12th grade) will compete in the afternoons/evenings
