Partnership with Colorado Association of Recreational Athletics brings the Track and Field program!

The Colorado Association of Recreational Athletics (CARA) began in 1970 to provide the recreational athletes of Colorado an opportunity to compete with teams from other municipalities. When CARA began it was mainly an adult sports association. While CARA still offers adult sport programs, it has become mainly a youth sports organization offering tennis, track & field, cross country, gymnastics, lacrosse, swim and dive programs. CARA also proudly sponsors special events such as the Colorado Rockies Baseball Skills Challenge and the Denver Nuggets Skills Challenge. This is the 2nd year southern Colorado parks and recreation departments have expanded their programs to include youth track & field. Register Button 2019 Blue

CARA Track and Field 

The City of Pueblo and Pueblo County are partnering to offer CARA Track and Field. Recreation agencies from around Colorado offer this program so young athletes ages 5–16 years old can participate in a healthy summer activity. Participants are put in heats by gender and age. All participants get a ribbon for each heat. Participants can try different events each week or just stick with their favorites. The season concludes with a state meet where athletes from different communities will compete together.
