Your Track Vault Pick of the Week

With the Oregon Twilight meet coming up this weekend, here's a 1975 SI article on Eugene and its love affair with track and running.
No matter what they tell you, Oregon has days of sunshine. The temperature will rise into the high 90s and the Willamette River will fill with black inner tubes and thrashing, splashing humans. And then Eugene's runners-joggers (maybe 10,000 of us out of a population of 90,000) take their exercise early in the morning or in the long twilight.
