Track & Field

Hodges Stadium at the University of North Florida boasts an arena with 12,000 seats, press box, track and field lighting and a 9-lane Olympic quality track with Mondotrack SX surface. The track has full markings for all NCAA and IAAF events, including the ability to run directional events in either direction on either straight. All field events may be held in the stadium, including 4 horizontal jump pits, 8 pole vault locations, and multiple areas for each throwing event. The facility also includes a full 400m, 3 lane warm-up track and brand new IAAF certified equipment provided by UCS.

Hodges Stadium has been host to the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field East Preliminary in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Hodges Stadium joined an exclusive club when it became one of 7 facilities in the U.S. to receive IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) certification in December of 2008, allowing it to host all NCAA and IAAF events within its grounds. It is currently certified as a Class II facility though it is built to Class I standards.

The facility additionally includes classrooms, offices, and the Browning Athletic Training and Education Center.
