Memorial Field Track Renovation Fund
The Memorial Track and Field at the University of Memphis has been serving the campus
community since the 1920's when it was established east of the first men's dorm, Scates
Hall. The track surface has been improved over the years from a cinder base to asphalt
over gravel. Due to surface deterioration and very poor drainage at the perimeter
curb, the university invested $140,000 in 2013 to repair the sub-base of the track
and completely resurface the facility with new asphalt. As a recreation running and
walking track, the current surface can be improved by installing a 13 millimeter overlay
of polyurethane bound permeable EPDM full depth color rubber basemat. The anticipated
cost of the installation is $150,000. The University is committed to covering two-thirds
of the cost if the remaining one-third can be raised through private funds. The new
surface will provide more resiliency and offer a more comfortable, long lasting surface
for recreation, education and community users of the track.
