EMU holds groundbreaking event to launch new track and field complex

Eastern Mennonite University is holding a groundbreaking event to launch construction of its new state-of-the art track and field complex on Monday, April 24, 2023, at 5 p.m. at EMU’s current track facility. Construction is set for completion in March 2024.

The new track and field complex is a strategic initiative of the university’s Forward Together Capital Campaign; $3.05 million has been raised, more than halfway toward the $6 million campaign goal. The new track will include an upgrade from six to eight lanes; the regrading and installation of a 10-millimeter full-pour polyurethane surface; and on-location throwing areas and steeplechase. The complex will support EMU student athletes and coaches, EMU’s enrollment goals, and the campus and local communities at large.

The event program features comments from EMU President Susan Schultz Huxman, Harrisonburg Mayor and EMU Regional Advancement Director Deanna Reed, and EMU Director of Athletics Carrie Bert ’97. The EMU track and field team will also recognize its 10 seniors during the event.
