The next Conference USA track is the Irwin Belk Track & Field Complex at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. If the name “Irwin Belk Track” sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the 6th one that I’ve posted. (You can search the archives to see the other five.) This facility opened in 1996 and is the home of the 49ers track & field teams. The field events are all contested on the inside of the 8-lane track, except for the pole vault, which is just outside lane #8 on the backstretch. There is a long runway with two sandpits inside of both straightaways which is really nice. Last season, they hosted two meets here. You can watch a short video tour HERE.
