Sprint lanes on both sides of the track allow simultaneous sprint races, and the excellent track surface is the best available for races of any distance.

An indoor throwing cage gives participants a chance to refine their techniques, and multiple areas for high jump, long jump, and pole vault allow field events to run quickly. Spectator seating for 3,000 gives an unobstructed view of the entire venue. The open, indoor area of the 75,000-square-foot Field House lends itself to non-track events. Overhead netting can be dropped down to partition off the infield from the track. The Field House is also a great space for exhibits and trade shows.
