Stony Brook University Athletics completed University Track, a new $3 million state-of-the-art outdoor track & field and FieldTurf practice facility, in July 2011 that now serves as the home of the Seawolves men's & women's outdoor track & field programs as well as a practice site for the men's & women's lacrosse, men's & women's soccer and football teams.
The new facility, designed by Clough, Harbor and Associates (CHA) and Paige Design Group, and built by the LandTek Group, sits on the grounds of the previous track on the west side of Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. The eight-lane track oval is made of a full-pour Mondo polyurethane surface that is 13 millimeters thick and has eight 42" inch lanes on the oval and both straight-a-ways, as well as two sprint chutes. The oval also includes space for the steeplechase.
The infield of the track has the same FieldTurf surface that is used at LaValle Stadium. The 225'x 360' field helps alleviate the practice schedule needs for Stony Brook's men's & women's lacrosse, men's & women's soccer and football teams, who all currently use LaValle Stadium for both practice and game competition.
The new facility also includes specialized areas for the field events. Adjacent to the oval are pits and runways for the long jump, triple jump and pole vault events. Also adjacent to the oval, but within the infield, is an area for the high jump. On the east side of the facility is a throwing area complete with separate spots for the shot put, hammer/discus and javelin.
