Weaver Track & Field Stadium
The state-of-the-art stadium for outdoor track and field sports provides available seating for nearly 2,500 spectators. The innovative design was crafted by Don Paige, formerly the best half-miler in the world. The oval is eight lanes across, with each lane 1.22 meters in width, and it features an impressively long radius of 36.5 meters on the turns. It is made of durable brick red full-depth polyurethane, the safest, fastest and most comfortable surface available. It meets the highest standards of track and field's world governing body, the International Amateur Athletic Federation.
Cross Country Course
2006 witnessed the opening of Princeton's new Cross Country Course, located entirely on campus. The new course begins on the West Windsor Fields, located just over the Washington Road bridge over Lake Carnegie. The course then winds through soybean fields towards U.S. Route 1 and back around to the open soccer fields. The manicured grass loop measures one-and-a-half miles and varies quite a bit in terrain. At the 1,000-meter mark, runners get a beautiful elevated view of Princeton's campus. The men's course measures 8,000 meters while the women race over a 6,000-meter course. With its even footing, it is also an absolutely terrific place to do longer interval training.
