The Foothills Athletic Park upgrades were completed in June 2011 for the Canadian Track and Field Championships. The upgrade provides Calgary track and field athletes and schools a world class outdoor athletics facility.
The enhancement includes an upgraded 400 meter track, four long jump pits, throwing cage and accessible spectator stands. The refurbishment places Calgary among the top cities in the country within this facility category.
This track now meets the IAAF Rule 140 technical requirements.
