Liberty University Indoor Track Complex

Liberty University Indoor Track Complex

Lynchburg, VA 2019

Project Description

Liberty University Indoor Track Complex brings all track and field coaches and staff together in one building while providing a premier experience for student-athletes.

The state-of-the-art facility contains a wide spectrum of amenities, including an eight-lane 100-meter warm-up track, team and locker rooms for both home and visiting teams, a fully equipped training room, a hydrotherapy room with two HydroWorx therapy tubs, and a 7,000-square-foot weight room. The facility also includes an innovative hydraulically banked six-lane 200-meter track, which upon completion was one of two in the state of Virginia, and one of only 15 in the United States. The track offers the facility flexibility to raise or lower the track surface to a particular angle, depending on the activity. Two national records were set on the track prior to the first meet hosted there. Spaces for field events to be held concurrently with track events were incorporated, as well.

The mezzanine level offers a full-service concessions area, permanent seating for nearly 1,500 spectators and a hospitality area for visiting coaches and staff, in addition to a team area above the warm-up track. An office suite provides space for the track and field coaches and staff to work, as well as a place to host prospective student-athletes.
