Karl Straus Track – Asheville, NC

University of North Carolina AshevilleWe’ve got a blue track today in the Big South Conference.  Karl Straus Track is found on the University of North Carolina – Asheville campus.  The new blue track surface, was installed in 2010, and you can view construction photos HERE.  The Bulldogs are not hosting any meets this season, and I am a little confused by the information posted on the facilities website.  It says “Due to new Big South and NCAA regulations, the track program has not been able to home a home meet in more than seven years.”  I am assuming this referred  to the old track, which was in horrible condition.  Why else would you spend the money to upgrade the track, it if didn’t meet the regulations for hosting meets?  It looks like a nice set-up now, with field events located on the infield.
