The 2015 Missouri Valley Conference Championship for outdoor track and field will be held on the Illinois State campus May 15–17.

The University last served as home for the event in 2010. Eight MVC institutions have men’s track and field teams, while nine sponsor women’s track and field.

“This will be a fantastic opportunity for our staff to showcase our young team and kick start a new era of Illinois State track and field,” Track and Field and Cross Country Director Jeff Bovee said.

“We have a unique venue in which the field events are contested inside of the track, allowing for a fan-friendly experience, where one can see all of the events simultaneously from any location,” he said.
