TI Track & Field Team

The Texas Instruments Track & Field Team has competed nationally at the United States Corporate Athletic Association (USCAA) Corporate Cup Track Meet since 1979. The final national meet was in 2014. TI participated for 36 years and won 16 national titles.

We now focus on the Houston and Maine Regional Meets. In Houston almost every event is a relay or team event with distances ranging from 100M sprints to a 3,200m race (by age group). Field events include high jump, long jump, discus, shot, and javelin. There are legs for various age groups and both sexes. We have runners in their 20's all the way up to people in their 70's. Many organizations at TI are represented. Maine features mostly individual running (100m-5K) and field events - all scored by place in 10 year age groups.

For 2021 there will be a VIRTUAL meet.  The rules allow employees, retirees, alumni, contractors working on the TI sites along with employee spouses and adult children. If you are interested in the team get started below.
