In 2005, Drake Stadium underwent significant improvements to make it one of the premier track and field facilities in the country. The Stadium, which has a capacity of 14,557, is home to the football and men’s and women’s soccer teams as well as the annual Drake Relays.
Following the 2005 Iowa State High School Track and Field Championships, the track was reconfigured and the new Mondo-surfaced track had lanes widened from 42 inches to 48 inches.
