Indoor Track and Field
The indoor 200 meter hydraulically banked track designed by Mondo is only one of seven in the United States and one of ten in the world. Mondo has designed the tracks for the last ten Olympic Games and is the global leader in the sports flooring market. With the touch of a button the state of the art six lane oval track takes just two minutes to raise or lower for banked corners. Once raised it becomes one of the fastest indoor tracks in the world…When running at the CrossPlex you’re taking on history with every stride.
All track and field components meet IAAF, NCAA and NFHS standards. There are eight-60 meter lanes (for dashes and hurdles) located within the infield area of the track with dual horizontal runways for pole vault, long jump and triple jump. Additionally, dual high jump approaches can be configured along with dual throwing sectors for shot-put located outside the oval next to the implement/weigh in station. Portable weight throw sector and cage meets IAAF and NCAA specifications.
