Randal Tyson Track Center
Widely considered the fastest indoor surface ever constructed, the Randal Tyson Track Center has been home to numerous world records, American records and a large percentage of all current NCAA Championship meet records. A feasibility study determined that both the fan and student-athlete experiences would benefit from reconfigured seating, enhanced circulation throughout the building, new concessions and restrooms, satellite locker rooms and training rooms facilities. The targeted completion date for the renovation and expansion is prior to the 2021 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, which will be held at the venue. The total project cost of the Randal Tyson Track Center Renovation and Expansion is currently estimated at $15-$20 million.
As with other athletics projects, this renovation will be funded entirely by athletics revenues, private gift support and bond proceeds from a future bond issue. No university funds, including any student fees, will be required to complete this project.
Track High Performance Operations Center
Just up Razorback Road at John McDonnell Field, additional opportunities exist to support our national championship winning men's and women's track and field programs. A recent study identified the needs of the facility were improved and expanded locker rooms, expanded training room, weight room, team room and equipment storage space. A new approximately 20,000 square foot Track High Performance Operations Center will combine many of the program's day-to-day operations to create an efficient space to serve our track and field programs and their more than 100 student-athletes.
