Track & Pavilion Facilities
The Keilor Park Athletics Track is a $1.2M all-weather synthetic track that has been certified as meeting IAAF standard Class II which allows for track & field competitions up to National level.
It is an eight (8) lane 400m track with a ten (10) lane 110m front straight.
The track is extensively marked to support *sprints (50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 & 110), *hurdles (from 60m to 400m), 200m/400 staggered starts, relay change over boxes, various middle distance start/finish lines, including steeplechase.
*Due to sprint/hurdles markings on both the front and back straights, sprints/hurdles can be run on either straight – handy if a tail wind has the potential to blow hurdles over on the front track-simply set up on the back track. Also provides flexibility in running sprints on front track at the same time as hurdles on the back track (or vice versa) or sprints on both straights at the same time to get more races through.
Jumps – 2 high jumps; 2 x triple jump; & 2x long jump (or 4 x long jump)
Throws – 2 x cages discus rings; 3 shotput rings (sectors 12m, 15m & 20m); 2 x javelin
The club has Little Athletics Victoria and School Sports Victoria compliant equipment to support the running of a full range of track & field events (excluding in-competition hammer throw and pole vault).
The club makes extensive use of electronic timing equipment which is available for hire during the track & field season (mid-September to March). Hire also subject to availability of club operators on working days.
Club equipment is for hire as part of the track hire. See track hire section for further details.
