Some of the pictures have some unnatural distortion as I have blended photos for the wide panoramic effect.

Cal Poly, Pomona

This is facing south. This had to deal with the size legacy of the previous seven lane track that was ruined by overwatering (every night with notably reclaimed water). The previous track was so damaged the lane lines washed away. Part of the old surface remains at the far end of the backstretch. In the re-construction they built two sprint straightaways with two different finish lines. While I was there the sprinklers started watering the high jump pit which I also assume to be a daily or nightly occurrence.

The sprint straightaways have two sets of lane lines. The 8 lanes from full circumference and the green six lane version for full NCAA width sprints and hurdles.
