Hodges Stadium at the University of North Florida boasts an arena with 9,400 seats, press box, track and field lighting and a 9-lane Olympic quality track with Mondotrack SX surface. The track has full markings for all NCAA and IAAF events, including the ability to run directional events in either direction on either straight. All field events may be held in the stadium, including 4 horizontal jump pits, 8 pole vault locations, and multiple areas for each throwing event. The newly renovated facility also includes a full 400m, 3 lane warm-up track and brand new IAAF certified equipment provided by UCS.
Hodges Stadium joined an exclusive club when it became one of 7 facilities in the U.S. to receive IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) certification in December of 2008. It is currently certified as a Class II facility though it is built to Class I standards.
