Continuing this New Zealand Track series, today it’s a great-looking Mondo track found in Nelson. Athletics Nelson is the club that gets to this facility their home. The track is part of a large sports complex serving the whole community. There is an extensive history of Saxton Field that you can read HERE. Work began on the first sports ground here in 1985. In 2009, a new $1.2 million track & field facility with a Mondo surface was installed. It is a very nice design, with all throwing events located on the inside, and multiple options for all of them. It also has this cool looking pavilion along the northwest straightaway.
