Our school has raised enough money to build an athletic field house. As head track coach I have been asked "what is the minimum size a track needs to be for it to be useful."
So I am asking the lets run community for some help. We don't need to host track meets, we are just looking for a good training track (it's winter here 8 months a year). I would like a 6 lane straight away and 4 lanes the rest of the way with banked corners. They are planning to only have two full sized basketball courts in the middle. Is this enough room? I know very little about proper dimensions so any help would be appreciated. The foot print of the building is around 40 to 45 000 sq feet. Thanks
