Rabindra Sarobar Stadium – Kolkata, West Bengal, India ‎

Rabindra Sarobar StadiumToday’s track is another older one, and this one is found on the eastern edge of India.  Rabindra Sarobar Stadium opened in 1961.  The cinder track doesn’t look like it’s changed very much since then.  The stadium capacity is listed at 18,000, and has seating in concrete benches with concrete backs on them.  When the lane lines are chalked, the track has six full lanes.  The field events appear to be contesting on the inside.
