The LTO is running three track programs for youth and adults that are offered through Littleton's Parks & Recreation. More information about the spring and summer youth track and field programs and the "Prepare to Run the Littleton Road Race" adult program is availabe.
The goal of the Brick Campaign is to raise funds to install a brick area between the storage shed and the track. This area is currently graveled and the equipment cannot be easily moved from the shed to the track. In addition, this area is used as a team gathering location. Having this area paved with brick will not only provide critical functionality for equipment movement, but will also be a beautiful addition that will greet athletes, users, and spectators to the track.
Engraved bricks are $75, $100, or $200
Littleton's newly constructed track and field facility is set to open for the spring track season. The Littleton Track Organization, a non-profit citizen's group, has been working since 2008 towards the goal of a safe and usable track and field facility that can be enjoyed by all Littleton residents.
Join us as we celebrate with a slide show presentation, a visit (weather permitting) to the new track, and a meal together.
Construction of the new track facility began on June 25, 2012. The track is now largely completed, but is not yet open for use.

Saturday, November 19, 2011. Littleton voters approved a debt exclusion to fund the track reconstruction at the Special Town Election. The vote was 472 "yes" to 299 "no" (with one blank ballot) — a 60% approval. This is the last step in the funding process!
I am very happy that the voters of Littleton again showed their support and voted to fund the reconstruction of our track facility. It is wonderful that our community will once again have a safe and usable track for students and residents to use. This vote represents the final approval of a project that has been carefully planned with Town residents and leaders over the past three years, and I am grateful for the many people whose hard work and support have made this outcome possible.

The reconstruction of the track and field facility will will go before Town Meeting on Monday, November 14th, and the town election on Saturday, November 19th. The Board of Selectman has voted to insert the following article on the warrant:
The School Committee voted unanimously to set amount of funding requested at $735,000. This figure is based upon the lateset estimate ($705,000 for the base bid; $30,000 soft costs) obtained by the Permanent Municipal Building Committee (PMBC) from Gale Associates.
The annual Littleton Road Race, the primary fundraiser for the LTO, is "on track" to be able to provide for the periodic maintenenance expenses needed for the track and field facility.
The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to put a debt exclusion question on the ballot of the special town election (Saturday, November 19, 2011) and include the borrowing authorization article in the special town meeting (Monday, November 14, 2011).
The PMBC, School Committee, Gale Associates, and the LTO have worked during the past year on the plans to reconstruct the track and field facility. The construction documents are almost finalized, and these documents are available at the Reuben Hoar Library (May 30, 2011).
Article 9 was approved on a voice vote at the May 3 Annual Town Meeting.
Concurring with the School Committee and Littleton Track Organization, the Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to support Site 1, the Existing Track Parcel, and to recommend for the May 3, 2010 Annual Town Meeting Article 9, Track Design and Development, in the amount of $35,000 to be transferred from Free Cash.
The conditions of the current track, which was constructed in 1979, pose safety hazards for the residents and athletes who use it, as well as liability risks to the town.
The LTO was formed in the Fall of 2008 by a group of concerned residents. We have been working with numerous town boards and organizations to promote the construction of a new track and field faciltity. The LTO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
