Happy New Year everyone! Some of the first track & field fans in the world to ring in 2014 are those from New Zealand, so I’m posting a track from there today. I fact, this is the first New Zealand track that I have posted. The track at Mt. Smart Stadium is a nice looking, two-tone track, with alternating red and gray lanes. All field events are located on the inside of the track, which is located down in a bowl. This was also the site of the 2013 New Zealand Championships.
The track stadium, is actually now considered arena #2. The original stadium (arena #1) is located right next door, and is used for soccer and rugby, and well as hosting some major concerts. There was a track here before the new one was built, and it was the first all-weather track in New Zealand. You can actually still see sections of it in the Google photo below, if you zoom in.
Get a 360-degree view from the center of the track HERE.
