Giresun Atatürk Stadium – Giresun, Turkey

Giresun TurkeyToday’s track is one of several in Turkey that are found in very scenic locations.  The track at Giresun Atatürk Stadium is located at the base of the mountains, on the southern shore of the Black Sea, and is literally right across the street from the beach.  So when you are sitting in the side bleachers, you have a great view, no matter which end of the stadium you are looking at.  The facility was built in 1941, and can hold just over 12,000 people.  It is also used for soccer.
