Notre Dame Outdoor Track

Quick Facts
Purpose: Practice & Competition
Capacity: TBA
Date Construction Started: June 2008
Number of Lanes: 9
Cost: Track - $3 million. Stadium - $5 million.

In June 2008, ground was broken for the construction of a new $3 million nine-lane outdoor track complex, with the 2009-10 school year marking the first season of practice in the new facility for the Irish. The new track, located southeast of the Joyce Center, will eventually become a full complex as the school continues to raise money for the building of a $5 million stadium portion of the track, which will be used to play host to outdoor meets in the coming years.

The track meets IAAF guidelines and features the widest possible turns. One synthetic "D" zone is provided at the south end of the track. Throwing and jumping events are located in two directions, and a warm-up area can be found at one end of the track.

Lead gifts for the project came from an anonymous benefactor, as well as six named Notre Dame supporters: John Hatherly '82, who ran track for the Irish as a miler; Dr. Bob Harris '69, a chemistry major who played intramural football and has participated in Notre Dame's Football Fantasy Camp; Dr. Jim Kerrigan '79, a Monogram winner for the Notre Dame track team; John Leahy '84, who continues the Leahy athletic legacy at Notre Dame; Mike Lukas '79 MA, whose daughter, Katherine, graduated Notre Dame in 2012; and Rick Peltz, a South Bend/Indianapolis business man.
