Legacy of Speed
Speed City athletes donned statement-making blue or gold singlets with white sashes to compete. Inspired by these original uniforms, our race-ready kits are delivered in classic Speed City colors. Cut for performance from lightweight dryCELL mesh, they’re finished with our Tracksmith x Puma insignia.
Highly functional dryCELL materials draw moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable. The racerback design ensures freedom of movement.
Speed City athletes often competed in singlets with an ivory sash. The sash is a signature running style, with roots in the 19th century. It’s a symbol of excellence that we hope will inspire runners to perform at a level worthy of all those who’ve worn it before.

Tracksmith x Puma
Together Tracksmith and Puma celebrate the legacy of Speed City, the dominant California men’s collegiate running program of the mid-20th century, whose athletes not only set global standards for performance but also fought for social justice through the Olympic Project for Human Rights and the 1968 Mexico City protest. It’s a culture of courage that lives on today.
Five percent of all Speed City Collection sales on Tracksmith.com will go to benefit the work of the Tracksmith Foundation to protect and create opportunities for youth in track and field.
From the Archives
Speed City was known for making statements on the track, paving the way for today's sprinting stars. At practice, on race day and around campus, they brought a signature style to classic activewear styles.
An Oral History
There are some stories that demand to be told in full. Tracksmith's first-ever podcast is a collaboration with Revisionist History’s Malcolm Gladwell, entitled Legacy of Speed. It tells the tale of Speed City from its origins to its impact.

Their activism galvanized the world and established a precedent for fighting for social justice through sport. It’s a battle that’s still being waged to this day. Together, Tracksmith and Puma celebrate the legacy of Speed City and their culture of courage.
