The Armory, home to the National Track & Field Hall of Fame and the New Balance Track and Field Center, is the busiest indoor track and field center in the United States and stands as a jewel in the center of Upper Manhattan. The Armory is also the home to an active technology & learning center and numerous community-based organizations. The National Track & Field Hall of Fame: It is a place to learn about what it takes to be the best you can be - come learn about what your body needs to be a great athlete, how to train, what to eat, how technology has changed the sport, and even what the great Olympians think about when they are competing.
Enter through our state-of-the-art lobby with cutting-edge media surrounding you and watch our orientation film - the beginning of a two-hour visit that is both educational and inspirational. Wind your way up through the What Makes a Champion, the History of Track & Field and the Fred Lebow Marathon Hall galleries, and you will finally arrive in the Hall of Fame Gallery, and see the famous Wall of Fame - our 40-foot- long etched glass wall with the names of all the inductees immortalized. Look through the wall into our 65,000 square foot arena that is home to the largest indoor collegiate and high school invitational events in the world. Take time to learn about the extraordinary members of the Hall of Fame in our Hall of Fame Kiosk located just across from the Wall of Fame.
