A Tribute to Inductees

Located at The Armory Foundation, at 216 Fort Washington Avenue in Washington Heights, New York, the museum is operated by The Armory Foundation in conjunction with USA Track & Field. Split into three levels, the first level contains a main lobby, the Hall of Fame Theater and the Hall of Fame History Gallery; the second level holds the Hall of Fame Atrium, the Hall of Fame Champion Gallery and the Fred Lebow Marathon Hall; and the third level holds the Hall of Fame Gallery featuring a 40-foot (12 m) long etched glass wall with the names of all the inductees engraved upon it.

A Great Run

Galleries have been designed to capture the history of the track events of the past and present, through a collage of contour cut sporting mannequins, an exploration depicting some of the sport’s little-known disciplines; and descriptive panels showcasing tributes to the sport’s greatest athletes and their influence. They house a large collection of sporting memorabilia and artifacts, a one-of-a-kind indoor running track floor, and a glass wall where visitors can see the 65,000-square-foot (6,000 m2) arena that is home to the largest indoor collegiate and high school invitational events in the world.
