Ferry Field and the Indoor Track Building

As a member of the Michigan track and field team, we train in the same arenas as Big Ten champions and U-M legends. During the indoor season, we prepare and compete at the Indoor Track Building, where we’re inspired everyday by the 57 banners that ring the six-lane Durathon-surface track, in honor of Michigan’s Big Ten champion teams. The Indoor Track Building has played host to countless Olympians and even more NCAA and Big Ten champions, and it provides an unmatched home-field advantage when Michigan hosts events twice each winter. As the weather warms up and the competition moves outdoors, we wear the Maize and Blue at historic Ferry Field, right in the heart of the Ross Athletic Campus. The site of Jesse Owens’  four world record-setting performances in 1935, Ferry Field is home to an eight-lane track where the emotion and energy of Michigan tradition will help us reach new heights as an athlete. Set to open for the 2018 season, an entirely new look is on the way as part of the new U-M South Campus, featuring top-end training and medical facilities, championship-caliber venues, new indoor and outdoor tracks and more. See for yourself – take a behind-the-scenes look at everything the University of Michigan’s track and field facilities have to offer.
