Opened in 1996, the Irwin Belk Track & Field Center hosts all the action for both Mens and Womens Track & Field squads. The site has played host to multiple home meets and Atlantic 10 Championships. The site has also played host to USA Track & field events and AAU Junior Olympic Trakc & Field Competitions.
The Irwin Belk Track & Field serves as the primary venue for the 49ers home track & field meets. The track was recently resurfaced during the summer of 2008 and is a high-grade polyurethane. The complex features discus and shotput puts. While just outside the center the 49ers have cleared land for competition hammer.
Four main light standards with 50-light poles help illuminate the track for evening training and competitions. When rain washes out practice, the 49ers head to Halton Arena for training around the indoor track.
The cross country and track and field teams have locker rooms inside the complex. Track and field and cross country coaches have offices inside the facility on the main entrance level. A hospitality suite with floor to ceiling windows on two-sides is adjacent to the coaches' offices and is utilized for various meetings as well as social gatherings and meals during athletic events. An auxiliary athletic training room is in the facility.
