INTERNATIONAL YOUTH TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
As would be expected in the capital city of the United States of America, the Washington D.C. area offers unmatched access to incredible museums, monuments, and one-of-a-kind events. The U.S. Capital, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Viet Nam Memorial, the Smithsonian Institute, and the incredible African American History and Cultural Center, are just a few of the must see attractions in "Chocolate City". Foreign teams report being welcomed by their national embassy, while others take the opportunity to visit the many colleges and universities in the area. Six Flags America - Upper Marlboro amusement park is only a few minutes from the track. Historic Fort McHenry, birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner, and the Great Blacks in Wax Museum, can be found in nearly Baltimore. And if your schedule allows, hop on a fast Amtrak Metroliner train to Philadelphia or New York City.
