Estadio Modelo Alberto Spencer Herrera – Guayaquil, Ecuador

Estadio ModeloI have one more track from the warm climate of Ecuador to post.  Today it’s found at Estadio Modelo Alberto Spencer Herrera. This stadium opened in 1959.  It obviously has been updated since then, including the track surface with the alternating blue and gray lanes, but even that is starting to show quite a bit of wear.  The track was most likely installed in 2001.  The infield is grass and is used mostly for soccer.  The field events here are found both inside and outside the track.  With the painting that has been done inside the stadium and the color that has been added, combined with the colorful track, this looks like an interesting old facility.  The photo below was taken at the national masters championships.  More can be viewed HERE.
