Boston will serve as the site of the kick-off and the grand finale of USA Track & Field's 2004 Indoor Golden Spike Tour, and fans around the country will be able to watch the Tour's four meets on five national television broadcasts on NBC and ESPN2.

The 2004 Indoor Golden Spike Tour begins January 31 with the adidas Boston Indoor Games at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. It continues February 6 at the Verizon Millrose Games at New York's Madison Square Garden, and on February 14 moves to the Tyson Foods Invitational in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

The final stop returns the Tour to Boston's Reggie Lewis Center for the 2004 USA Indoor Track & Field Championships, held February 27-29. More than 600 of America's top athletes will compete in Boston, with the top two finishers in each event being selected for Team USA - the World's #1 Track & Field Team - that will compete at the 2004 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Athletics March 5-7 in Budapest, Hungary.

On March 6-7, the USA Indoor Combined Events Championships will be held for the third consecutive year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The men will contest the heptathlon, and the women will contest the pentathlon at the Eddie Smith Fieldhouse on the UNC campus.

Now in its sixth year, the Golden Spike Tour provides America's best athletes the opportunity to compete in the United States and earn substantial prize money in front of a nationally televised audience. Live crowds at Golden Spike Tour meets typically have averaged more than 10,000 fans, with TV ratings rising as much as 25 percent in any given year for individual broadcasts.
