Ben Burn Park – Karori, New Zealand

Ben Burn ParkWe’re back to a grass track today, located at Ben Nurm Park in Karori.  This is the home of Karori Amatuer Athletics Club.  There are a couple of interesting things with this track.  On the north end, they have an all-weather runway for the long and triple jumps, landing in a shaded sand pit.  You’ll notice right next to the runway, two more lanes are added to the outside of the track.  This gives them six lanes for 300+ meters, but only four full lanes all the way around. Additional lanes are also added to the main straightaway.  You can also see the short, 8-lane straight added on the inside of the track.
