Track & Field Facilities

The nationally acclaimed Clarence F. Robison Track is the home of the BYU men's and women's track teams. Coaches and athletes rate BYU's outdoor track as one of the finest in the nation. Its compact design allows spectators to view both running and field competitions at the same venue. With the majestic backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains, the Clarence F. Robison Track is a picturesque setting for all events.

Prior to 1982, all track events, including the 1967 and 1975 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, were held at Cougar Stadium. When the football stadium was expanded in 1982, the current track stadium was constructed just south of the football stadium.

In 2002, the track was completely renovated with a state-of-the-art Mondo Super X surface. The track, with a revamped drainage system, provides one of the best workout and competition facilities in the West.

On April 24, 2004, during the Robison Invitational, Mark Robison, current men's assistant coach and son of former coach Clarence Robison, unveiled the track stadium's new name in front of family, friends and former student-athletes.

BYU hosted the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in the track stadium in 1982 and 1989 along with numerous conference championship events. In 2006, the Clarence F. Robison Track hosted the Mountain West Conference Outdoor Championships and the NCAA Outdoor Regionals. The complex hosts several regular-season meets throughout the track and field season.
