Read Memorial Track – Lexington, VA

Virginia Military InstituteRead Memorial Track is the Big South track of the day today, and it’s found on the Virginia Military Institute campus.  You can find the track at Foster Stadium, which first opened in 1962.  It has undergone several renovations, with the most recent being a $15 million improvement plan in 2006.  Seating here is listed as 10,000.  The track itself has eight full lanes.  Field events are on the inside which is nice.  There is also an interesting angle for the pole vault runway and water jump for the steeplechase on the west end.  I haven’t seen anything quite like this before.  The Keydets are not having any home meets this season, so they will just be practicing here.
