The Bowerman Track Club is a collection of athletes based in and around Beaverton, Oregon ranging from youth to professional to Masters runners. We were founded in 2003 as a track club for Nike employees and named the Bowerman Athletic Club after former University of Oregon coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. Over the past 11 years, we have developed a thriving youth program with more than 100 members and in 2014 we added the professional athletes of Jerry Schumacher's training group and became the Bowerman Track Club (BTC).
