Recently resurfaced in Mondo. I'm going to rant here: This one pisses me off. I have gotten mail from a high school less than a mile from this track seeking information about building an irregular sized all-weather track for the team to practice on. This first class track is an unused buffer for the soccer field, locked behind high security fencing. There is no team at this school, the only users of the track are a flock of geese, who have left a layer of their byproducts all over the track. The school apparently doesn't even bother to clean it. Other than the High Jump pad, no field event facilities were installed.

Yellow. There is a warm up lane inside of the curb. This has to be the ugliest color I have ever seen on a track (I guess they were trying for Gold, as in Golden Bears), with blue lines. But my opinion could be wrong, this was awarded as an Outstanding Track Facility by the USTC&TBA, an industry association. ! At night, this is effectively closed with gates and concrete walls.

San Pablo Ave. and 53rd St.
You have got to see the shape of this one. This is an all weather track with a right turn and an angled straight in it, I kid you not--see the aerial photo. This is apparently not a 400 meter track from the looks of it, how would they measure with a right turn? Road course rules? Now that I have gotten to see it in person, there are no calibrated start lines, just a start and finish line (apparently for 100M) on the longest straightaway. Those lines are slightly into the turns so the straightaway is 99m with no run out and a sharp turn at the end! There is also a noticible change in elevation and drainage slopes along this track. This has the highest fence I have seen yet. This whole, microscopic high school campus (this is the smallest urban campus I've seen) is not easy to get into. Is this a jail? The AW long jump runway and pit are full of weeds (indicating no maintenence or usage) and the high jump pad is not much more useful than a postage stamp.

Between Hayward Blvd and Harder Rd. East of Mission Blvd.
The track at this location dates to the 1970's, apparently never upgraded since its original installation (before 1973 when I first saw it). The lane lines are almost invisible, except someone has refreshed the 100m start and finish (offset 10m). The Steeplechase pit apparently (fenced with barrier removed) was installed at a different time, the surface is a different color and the race is designed to finish south. The concrete curb is raised above the track surface, but not enough to qualify as a legal curb. And in a wimpy step of geopolitical ambiguity, the name of Hayward has been replaced with "East Bay.

They have the curbing and the inner line has been drilled to mount it, but it has been removed and is sitting along the fence outside of the track--and it looks like its been there a while. Perhaps they put it in place when a meet is important but I have seen them conduct meets without a curb. Steeplechase finishes the opposite direction.

! This is a security fortress, difficult, but not impossible to get into. Note: the unattended sprinkler system and bad drainage has done more damage to the track than any runner. I'll note yet again when I visited, the sprinklers were running and flooding the entire track like they apparently (from the water stains) have been for years. The wall in background of the picture is a dominant feature on the northeast end of the track.

370 meters with calibrated lines for each distance and each relay hand off zone. Every line seems correct except for an unexplainable blue line (at least that I cannot figure out) equivalent with the acceleration zone of the 3rd 4x100 handoff. I can't explain how the 4x400 (1600m) relay start line, in lane 1 is 9" shorter than the 1600 start line that has to be at the same location. ! located in a run down neighborhood at a run down looking inner city high school, this very clean track is kept secure not only by a fence with slats but one they have placed a fine mesh screen over each chain link gate to make it harder to climb.

Some obvious wear spots, cracks and missing chunks, which they have identified with spraypaint (meaning they will probably repair soon).

In the center of the campus--at 19th Ave. and Holloway
When I visited, the curb was missing but I met the track coach John Johnson who told me it was removed for the graduation ceremonies and will return for track season. That might explain some of the others. He also told me the west gates to the stadium have never been locked and he supports open runners who come out and use the facility (with, of course, due care). He had just padlocked the throwing cage because the soccer players were abusing it for a goal. See the coach to get in. They also have an off site, up hill hammer practice area. Steeplechase equipment is currently missing but the Adjustable is coming before track season 2003. 13m offset finish line. The east D sector contains more field event facilities than I've ever seen in such an area--HJ, PV, Horizontal Jumps and Javelin.

This looks like an older track (from the aging signs in the surface). There are lots of pock marks from repairs with a different, softer surface material. This is a broken back track to fit into the available space with a real concrete curb. I believe the straightaways are not paralell, the east turn being wider than the west.

I must comment on how uneven this surface is--on the homestretch, each lane line has a high point with a valley in between (though not as bad as I noted in previous comments--maybe they fixed it, maybe I was just sensitive at the time). The original hard Rubber Asphalt track dates to about 1970 but was resurfaced with new materials about mid-80's. There is almost one extra lane of the ancient surface around the outside of the track. There is also a dirt training lane inside the track that has been neglected. Adjustable steeplechase barriers around the track, but fenced water jump is stationary. Finish line offset 19m.

This was a worn out old asphalt track. But now it has been brought up to modern standards by a donation to his alma mater by quarterback Jeff Garcia and was taken off the Bottom 10 list. It had been a rare case where you'd see a 440 track marked with cascading FINISH lines for metric races and sprints finishing on a different line (down the straightaway). You could feel the many layers of paint on each marking (or maybe those have not worn down nearly as much as the rest of the track surface). And it had a real concrete curb.

Or the hidden way in is from Bella Vista St. off Los Gatos Blvd. Follow it one way down the hill to the parking lot. The turns are so wide here it is hard to determine where they start and stop, plus there seems to be some multi-radius action that softens the beginning of the curve. When it was resurfaced in June 2005, some of the north turn warm up lane inside of the metal curb was sacrificed in order to mark this now as a metric track--see the extra lane on the outside of that turn.

This is the worst maintained all-weather facility I've ever seen. This is worse than a dirt track--the surface is almost unrecognizable. The original surface didn't look to be much more than painted pavement to begin with (I didn't notice any rubbery feel to the chipped away surface). This has been so neglected that much of the straightaways have gone through to dirt. This is now a dangerous mix of dirt, mud holes and disintegrating pavement. ! And its protected by barb wire fences. Don't even bother to go here, go to Independence, Silver Creek, Mt. Pleasant, Overfelt or even SJSU nearby is better.

Actually they already have, with lines painted on the track and dirt to park cars there. The track bubbled even in the old days, but as of 2007, someone has fixed the bubbles. No other maintenence has been done in decades. Some pieces are now missing, runways are overgrown. They even have the original cascading metric finish lines from the original painting.

Dates back to 1974 (resurfaced/modified at least twice since then). It is now Blue. They once had a curb but took it out. It is inexplicable why the outside curb still exists, but the inside curb was removed and sits in a pile on a pallet at the head of the chute (seems to have been that way for a couple of years, maybe they install it when I am not around). This stadium has no seating or lights (and apparently never will due to neighborhood objections), so it wouldn't have been used for graduation. Note: the tenth lane on the first turn, a result of the shortening of the track from imperial to metric. It is curious they have only marked 4x400 relay zones in the first 5 lanes. Because of the slice Steeplechase course, the steeplechase is marked to finish at a different finish line on the homestretch.

Off Suisun Valley Road, north of Cordelia Junction (way out west of town)
In terrible condition. Hard surface, worn to powder, very inconsistent. Lane lines obliterated in many places. Curb overgrown with weeds. Soccer benches and garbage cans litter lane 1 (obviously not used for competition). When I visited this was one of the windiest locations I've ever experienced. I am told this is normal. Considering the wind conditions, without constructing a huge wall this probably isn't worth salvaging. Finish line offset 20m.
