Just like sports themselves, hosting a successful sporting event takes practice — and Tallahassee, Florida has years of it at the youth, amateur, collegiate and professional levels.
The crown jewel of the Capital City is Apalachee Regional Park, which recently hosted the NCAA Division I Cross Country National Championships. As one of the nation’s only facilities dedicated specifically to cross-country events, the pristine, multi-surface course is ideal for athletes striving for personal bests.
Three distinguished universities and colleges in Tallahassee offer top-tier stadiums, training fields and arenas as options for hosting events. Facilities needed for world-class swimming, diving, basketball, cheerleading and soccer events are present at Morcom Aquatics Center, FAMU’s Alfred J. Lawson Multipurpose Center, the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center, and Seminole Soccer Complex.
Once you arrive in Tallahassee, there’s no shortage of things for athletes, coaches, and attendees to do during the hours between competitions. Rest comfortably in your choice of over 6,000 hotel rooms. Enjoy delicious cuisine from local restaurants and a craft beer from award-winning craft breweries or explore the area’s 700+ miles of hiking, biking, and paddling trails.
