SAU set to host groundbreaking for new Ralph G. Walker track complex

posted in: Project Updates | 0

Spring Arbor University invites the community to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ralph G. Walker Track Complex on Friday, May 12, 2017. The new track complex renovation and restoration is being made possible by the Martin D. and Mary J. Walker Charitable Foundation and will be completed this fall.

The interior of the track will feature new long jump, triple jump and pole vault runways and pits. A new high jump apron and javelin runway will rest at the south end of the track, while a new steeplechase water barrier will be positioned at the north end. Another exciting addition to the facility will be the combined hammer- and discus-throwing cage. This will be the first throwing cage on SAU’s Spring Arbor campus, an addition that will greatly benefit the growing number of throwing athletes.

The groundbreaking ceremony will begin at 12:45 p.m. on May 12, 2017 at the current SAU Track Complex located near the Spring Arbor University Fieldhouse on 2nd St., Spring Arbor, Michigan. There will be a community reception immediately following the ceremony.

No RSVP is necessary. For more information, contact Jillian Barres at or 517-750-6348.
