Foothills Athletic Park – Calgary, Alberta

Foothills Athletic ParkContinuing in Canada, we moved west to Alberta today.  The featured facility of the day is the site of this weekend’s Alberta High Schools Athletic Association Provincial Championships.  You can find Foothills Athletic Park on the campus of the University of Calgary, and is the home of the Dinos track & field teams.  The facility is operated by the city of Calgary.  This looks like a really nice track.  It is a track & field only facility, so they have lots of options for the field events here.  Everything except the shot put is contested on the inside of the track.  It’s an 8-lane track with a new Beynon surface that was installed in 2011 for the Canadian Championships.  This is has to be one of the nicest tracks in all of Canada.  The AHSAA meet starts on Friday, with finals on Saturday.
