FOREST GROVE, OREGON – PACIFIC UNIVERSITY

On the west edge of the Portland Metro Area, Forest Grove offers perfect proximity to the city and the great outdoors. Pacific University is just a short drive or public transit ride from downtown Portland, or an hour away from the Oregon Coast or Cascade Mountains. The 400-meter oval is one of few nine-lane facilities in the Northwest. The center pitch is composed of FieldTurf, which is also used by teams in the English and Scottish premier leagues. The stadium’s long jump pits are uniquely located between the straightaway and the stadium seating area. Natural grass practice fields are located just north of the stadium. The field doubles as the throwing venue for track meets, including the javelin, discus and hammer. Pacific U hosted several teams before the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships.
