On Tuesday, USATF announced the 2014 USA Track and Field Championship would be returning to Sacramento.

“Sacramento has a tremendous track & field culture and we are very pleased to be returning in 2014,” said USATF CEO Max Siegel. “The fan support in the region is fantastic, and the weather conditions serve sprinters, field event athletes and distance runners alike. We look forward to another successful partnership with the Sacramento Sports Commission.”

Mayor Kevin Johnson was no less enthusiastic.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Track & Field back to Sacramento,” said Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. “Sacramento has some of the most passionate sports fans in the United States and I have no doubt that this community will support the event and the athletes like no other region in the country could.”

As part of the deal, CSUS will be replacing the track at Hornet field. The track is 15 years old, and newer track surfaces are resulting in faster times for athletes.

The USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held June 26-29.
