Special Olympics Rio Rancho is a delegation of Special Olympics New Mexico.  We are a non-profit organization that provides athletic training and competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Our athletes enjoy camaraderie and gain a sense of pride and accomplishment through participating in our events.
Track and Field skills improve the athlete's overall body conditioning
as well as increase his or her level of physical fitness, which is
essential for a variety of activities.

Athletes of all ability levels can participate successfully. They can
choose from a wide variety of events:

Race Walking
Distance Running
Relays (traditional or unified)
Shot Put

Turbo Javelin

Pentathlon (100m Run, 400m Run, Running Long Jump, High
Jump and Shot Put).

Each athlete is allowed to compete in three events: two Track
Events and one Field Event.
