Track & Field Venue
The new track and field venue, located adjacent to the Physical Education building in the site of former University Field, has a 9-lane IAAF certified track. The surface is Olympic-caliber Beynon BSS 2000 that features a force reduction layer of butyl rubber and full-depth color Polyurethane. Other top track and field venues that have this surface include the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field and multiple national track and field champion Texas A&M. There is a natural turf infield that includes a throws area as well as an irrigation system. There is also a separate hammer throw area adjacent to the venue.
The venue, which is used strictly for track and field activities, was completed in the fall of 2013.
