The Prefontaine Classic has announced multiple efforts to amplify the fan experience at this year’s event, which serves as the Wanda Diamond League Final starting September 15.
While the meet spans September 16 and September 17, the fan events start on September 15 in downtown Eugene with Rally in the Alley, at the 5th Street Public Market Alley with interactive games, giveaways, athlete appearances, University of Oregon cheerleaders, the University of Oregon Duck and special offers from local organizations.
Prior to the meet on both Saturday and Sunday, fans are invited to a fan festival on Agate Street named to honor a district in Steve Prefontaine’s hometown of Coos Bay, Oregon. The festival is open on both days of the meet. The Marshfield District will also include local food vendors, beer from local brewery Hop Valley, games, and more.
