Princeton Cross Country and Track & Field Facilities
Jadwin Gymnasium - Serves as the indoor home for the Princeton track & field teams. The impressive six-lane and 200-meter track was resurfaced in 2005. The facility is ideal for training and competing. Jadwin Gym has a combined floor space of approximately 250,000 square feet, more total area than eight football fields and seating for more than 5000 spectators. It is also home to Princeton basketball. In addition, the building contains a varsity weight room, an indoor baseball diamond, tennis and squash courts and a fencing room.
Weaver Track & Field Stadium - The state-of-the-art stadium for outdoor track and field provides available seating for nearly 2,500 spectators. The innovative design was crafted by Don Paige, formerly the best half-miler in the world. The oval is eight lanes across, with each lane 1.22 meters in width and features an impressively long radius of 36.5 meters on the turns. It is made of durable brick red full-depth polyurethane, the safest, fastest and most comfortable surface available. It meets the highest standards of track and field's world governing body, the International Amateur Athletic Federation.
Cross Country Course - In 2006 our own cross country course located entirely on campus was opened. The new Princeton cross country course begins on the soccer fields located just over the Washington Road bridge. It winds through soy bean fields toward Route 1 and back around to the open soccer fields. The manicured grass loop measures one and a half miles and varies quite a bit in terrain. At the 1,000-meter mark you get a beautiful elevated vista of Princeton's campus. The men's course measures 8,000 meters while the women race over a 6,000 course. With its even footing, it is an absolutely terrific place to do longer interval training.Click here for course maps
