Mike Long Track

Widely recognized as one of the best facilities in the South, the Florida State track & field team has been calling Mike Long Track home since 1957 at its current location. The facility has undergone a number of renovations through the year, but none bigger than the year-long project which led to the 18,000-square foot expansion of what is now called the McIntosh Building. Dedicated on Oct. 28, 2008, the Seminoles' 22,000-square foot home includes offices, an expansive press box, state of the art training room and first-class locker rooms.

Prior to the start of the 2013 season, the 400-meter track and its runways were completely resurfaced with the next generation of the Hobart Texture Synthetic Surface; the same surface installed at Oregon's historic Hayward Field, home to the NCAA Championships and the US Olympic Trials.
Of course, it primarily serves as the home to Seminoles, whose men won the 2006 and 2008 NCAA Championships, and whose women have also claimed a pair of NCAA team titles. Each spring Florida State hosts as many as three events at its facility, kicking things off each March with the FSU Relays.
Among the many features within the McIntosh Building, are:

• Men's locker room with 50 full-length oak lockers
• Women's locker room with 70 full-length oak lockers
• Student-athlete lounge that looks out over the track
• Medical preparation area with wet area, approximately 900 square feet
• Six coaches' offices, a graduate assistant area, a conference room and a coaches' locker room on the second floor
• Existing building has been modified to have a press area/meet administration area on the second floor and a storage room and squad room and visiting medical area on the bottom floor
• Wireless Internet access in all areas and a two-story, vaulted entryway that will be used to display the rich tradition and history of the men's and women's track and field and cross country programs.
• All visitors to the track will enter through the Legends Plaza that will be erected to showcase the best and brightest of the Seminole Track Family to be completed in the summer of 2008.

Named after Florida State's first full-time head track & field head coach, the complex has attracted some of the top meets in the nation. Mike Long Track and the City of Tallahassee played host to the USA Track and Field National Junior Championships in 1988 and the AAU National Championships in 1991. Florida State has also hosted the Atlantic Coast Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 1992, 2005 and 2015, and will again in 2016. Mike Long Track has also been the host of the NCAA East Regional Championships. The USA Track and Field National Junior Championships returned to Mike Long Track in the Summer of '94. The British Olympic Team, who trained in Tallahassee for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, used the facility for all their track and field practices and workouts over the summer.

Mike Long Track continues to serve as the training facility for many national and world class athletes. As the Seminole track & field program continues to prosper, Mike Long Track will continue to host some of the top athletes, teams and meets in the sport.
