The USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships get underway Wednesday at Drake University’s Blue Oval.

Fans will be traveling from across the country to cheer on their favorite athletes, but Iowa kids are getting a chance to see the action live for free.

The Iowa High School Athletic Association announced Tuesday that free tickets to the events on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are being offered to K-12 students. The complimentary tickets are being paid for by Principal Financial Group.

If you’re interested in getting tickets, they can be obtained at the Iowa Hall of Pride at 330 Park Street in Des Moines from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. Students will have to show a school ID to get tickets and the limit is two tickets per student.

Drake last hosted the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in 2010.
