    Other than the practice area under the West stands which I presume could hold a competition....there is no indoor facility anywhere near here.
    Thanks for the response... good to know they may have an option in a needed scenario.

    No...from what I have seen...pole vault is the only facility under the stands I have heard of.

    Also now with the indoor running area to warm up in the runners come out ready to run. Much nicer.
    At a recent decathlon (April, Spec Towns, GA), the weather was so rainy/bad during the PV, that was there was a long delay in the competition, and an hour or two later, they ended up moving the PV competition indoors... and I'm sure it helped them to achieve a better official/accepted score.

    Outside it looks huge...but inside it has a nice intimate feeling. And you could easily sit in the seats all day.

    So if you like track, and it's not raining, and wear a sun hat or visor, you will have a fine time.

    PS. The scoreboard in the southeast corner is impossible to read in the East Grandstand.....the video is fine but race results and starting lists are illegible...

    The roof is pretty useless for blocking the sun...

    I sat in row 6 from the front and the edge of the roof was directly overhead...and so high with any wind at all a lot of seats will get wet.

    Unfortunately the only view of outside Hayward is that old dorm on 15th.

    That makes more sense....

    anybody have any input on that?

    That's rather comical I must say. The seats have been in place for a year now and only now they find out. I wonder what else is wrong in the place....is the tower going to fall over...

    Here is a picture I took almost exactly a year ago....
