Recapping New Balance Nationals Indoor 2016

Recapping New Balance Nationals Indoor 2016


This past weekend, the best high school track & field athletes from around the U.S. gathered, faced off, and set new records at The Armory in New York City. The competition was fierce, and Eastbay had a front row seat for every adrenaline-fueled second of New Balance Nationals Indoor 2016.

We watched athletes run, throw, jump, and even dance with heart, leaving it all on the oval in an effort to be crowned an All-American. Between events, we kicked back with the athletes and did our best to help them share their success with their family and friends.

#NBN With Eastbay

We did this mainly through our Scan and Score Challenge, a multi-station social media contest that had participants competing once again — this time for gear. The stations included timed trivia, photo sharing, and backpack customization. Most featured the option to share on social media. We collected all these posts in one giant hub for everyone to see.


Each station of the Scan and Score Challenge racked up points, and the fiercest competitors soon began to top our leaderboard.


When all was said and done, the top four players qualified for our grand prize pack. To be honest, we’re a little jealous we couldn’t win ourselves.


In addition to the Scan and Score Challenge, we also had a Daily Gear Grab Sweepstakes, which offered a chance for participants to win free sunglasses, socks, and the occasional Eastbay Gift Card.

Fun Off The Track

Besides working to win awesome gear, New Balance Nationals participants kept busy by customizing New Balance spikes and backpacks and breaking it down with some serious moves.




At the end of the day, New Balance Nationals is all about athletic achievement. We were blown away by the dedication, strength, and speed of all the athletes who competed at The Armory. In total, 15 national records were broken, continuing the legacy of greatness at New Balance Nationals. Look HERE for complete event results.



Eastbay is incredibly proud to be a partner in New Balance Nationals, and we can’t wait for the Outdoor competition in June. Are you ready? Start Preparing For Greatness today.
