The Track at New Balance had its official opening last spring and has already seen a world record performance on the lighting fast track. A team comprising of New Balance stars Heather MacLean, Kendall Ellis and Elle Purrier, joined by then high school senior, the 2022 New Balance Nationals Indoor 800m champion and soon to be world junior 800m champion Roisin Willis, smashed the world distance medley relay record by over 6 seconds. The time of 10:33.85 shattered the previous record of 10:39.91.
New Balance Nationals Indoor has proven to be the pinnacle HS track and field event, hosting over 3,500 athletes annually, and just last year, the Championships featured the three fastest high school only races in history (Men’s 800m, Men’s mile, and Women’s mile). The 2023 event will give the future world record holders and world champions the opportunity to compete for national titles on a new, state-of-the-art track.
