Eccles Coliseum – Cedar City, UT

Eccles ColiseumToday’s featured track is the home of the Thunderbirds of Southern Utah University.  While Eccles Coliseum is not the largest venue, it certainly is just as nice as the others in the Big Sky Conference, including the great mountain-view setting.  The track surface here was installed in 2009.  They also have new artificial turf that was installed in 2012.  The field events are all located on the outside of the track, with several of the at the north end.  I like the big extra area that they have available at that end as well.  The horizontal jumps are right outside lane #8 on the east side.  The hammer/discus cage is farther out behind the softball field.  I really like how this venue looks.  And the “Coliseum” name fits, once you see some views from down on the track.  Awesome!
