Fuller Track & Field Complex
While the spot on campus has long been home to Texas Tech's nationally prominent men's and women's track & field teams, the Terry and Linda Fuller Track & Field Complex was officially christened in 2009.
The track facility at Texas Tech is named the Terry and Linda Fuller Track & Field Complex in honor of the generous contributions made by the Fuller family whose support for the Athletics Department is vital and appreciated.
Texas Tech University officials unveiled the completion of $1.2 million in facility upgrades to the Terry and Linda Fuller Track and Field Complex during the 2014 season.
The project, which included renovations to two existing buildings and the addition of a 3,900 square-foot storage facility, was completed this week and adds a state-of-the-art team room, two locker rooms and an upgraded athletic training facility.
Texas Tech track and field student-athletes will now enjoy the benefits of a 3,500 square foot team area and expanded locker room space, all of which opens up to the north edge of the Fuller Track. The team room features custom red and black carpet with an oversized Double-T graphic, four game-style tables, three study tables and an 80-inch high definition flat-panel TV.
Meanwhile, each locker room features 90 custom oak lockers and bathrooms with Texas Tech red and black colored tiles.
The project added 924 square feet to the original building.
The previous team building, located beneath the Fuller Track bleachers, has been converted to a fully functional athletic training area complete with five treatment tables, a taping station and custom Texas Tech Sports Medicine signage. The athletic training area provides ample space for Texas Tech student-athletes to receive medical treatment within walking distance of the Fuller Track.
Texas Tech also installed a 3,980 square foot storage area on the southeast corner of the Fuller Track and Field Complex. The area is fully powered and includes three 12-foot by 12-foot garage doors, concrete flooring and was completed with split faced brick siding.
Major renovations completed in 2009 helped establish Fuller Track as one of the most unique facilities in the nation.
The Super Mondo X surface, first used at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and one of the fastest track surfaces in the world, was installed. Sprint lanes, pole vault pits, high jump, long and triple jump pits were relocated to the middle of the oval track. A separate throwing area bookends the main track and field areas and both include ample fan seating, viewing and parking areas.
The facility, which played host to its first major competition at the 2009 Big 12 Outdoor Track & Field Championships, sits near the baseball stadium and is centrally located on the campus proper and is located to the north of the sprawling Tech campus.
