C.I.T. Sports Ground – Cork, Ireland

CITThe track of the day today is found on the campus of the Cork Institute of Technology, in Ireland.  Their big meet of the summer season was held here on July 8th.  This was the 63rd year of the Cork City Sports International Athletics Meeting.  Full results can be viewed HERE.  Flotrack was also there, and you can watch their post-race interviews HERE.  This track itself looks pretty nice.  Field events are held on the inside, but there is lots of grass space.  Sometimes facilities will fill in both D-zones with track surface for the field events.  Here, they tried to keep as much grass as possible by installing the synthetic surface only for what was needed.  I like it!

*Note – the Bing satellite photo is old.  There are now covered bleachers installed by the west straightway where the trees are shown.
