UMBC Stadium – Baltimore, MD

UMBCToday’s featured track is found on the campus of the University of Maryland-Baltimore Country, and is the home of the Retrievers Track & Field teams.  UMBC Stadium is a mutli-use facility for soccer and lacrosse as well as track & field.  The track surface was expanded in 1996 to what you see in the photo above.  You don’t see too many facilities with this much surface installed.  I kind of like how the shot put area is placed in the middle of the big area at the southeast end.  The facility was opened in 1976, and they have continually been improving and adding things overtime ever since.  The bleachers here have a seating capacity of 4,000.
