The Hershey track program is a national program involving recreation departments that hold local and state track meets, culminating in an invitational, all-expense paid trip and competition in Hershey, PA. The program is sponsored by the Hershey Corporation to promote fitness in America's youth. The emphasis of the program is learning the events, trying your best to improve your performance, and having fun running. Each age group (9-10, 11-12, 13-14) has four individual running races, two field events, and a 4 x 100 relay. At each of the first two sessions participants try two of the running distances and one of the field events.
