Barton Hall, Cornell
....... (photos taken Jan 2006)
|Some info from the Cornell University Athletic
web-site (and other sources) ...The Barton Hall track facility
contains a flat 200 meter track with eight 42-inch lanes (it is
one of the few indoor 200-meter tracks in the country with eight such
lanes) ... The track is a Recaflex track, meaning the base layer of the
track is constructed with SBR rubber and polyurethane binders and
surface is a coating of EPDM rubber and polyurethane (e.g. Recaflex's
multi-layers of polyurethane are mixtures of polyurethane & rubber
granules) ... The track itself has a raised aluminum curb and a common
finish line (the entire surface was replaced in early 2001).
Barton Hall contains a throwing cage with a cement circle and crusher dust landing sector surrounded by a 25-foot high chain link fence ... The interior of the track has a Recaflex runway for the pole vault, two long and triple jump pits and multiple high jump areas.
The permanent seating capacity is reported as 4800 ... however, that probably include a section of roll-out bleachers (similar to high school gyms) located near first-turn that is not totally usable for track meets.
