The Hershey's Track & Field Games is an event for 9 to 14 year olds, who have previously competed in Hershey's meets at their schools and local meets throughout the year.

The games features running events like the 50 metre dash and the 800 metre run, and it has field events like the softball throw and the standing long jump.

Winners become eligible for selection to the regional team, which attends the Hershey's North American Final in Pennsylvania. The trip to Hershey is free for competitors and while there, they will get to visit Hersheypark, visit Hershey's Chocolate World and tour Hershey's state-of-the-art chocolate factory.

The Hershey's Track & Field Games is the longest running youth activity program of its kind in North America. It is about helping get kids on the right track with regard to healthy living, and teaching lifelong lessons and having fun with every Run, Jump & Throw. More than 10 million kids have participated in the games since they began.
