Princeton Cross Country and Track & Field Facilities

Jadwin Gymnasium - Serves as the indoor home for the Princeton track & field teams.  The impressive six-lane and 200-meter track was resurfaced in 2005. The facility is ideal for training and competing. Jadwin Gym has a combined floor space of approximately 250,000 square feet, more total area than eight football fields and seating for more than 5000 spectators. It is also home to Princeton basketball. In addition, the building contains a varsity weight room, an indoor baseball diamond, tennis and squash courts and a fencing room.


Weaver Track & Field Stadium - The state-of-the-art stadium for outdoor track and field provides available seating for nearly 2,500 spectators. The innovative design was crafted by Don Paige, formerly the best half-miler in the world. The oval is eight lanes across, with each lane 1.22 meters in width and features an impressively long radius of 36.5 meters on the turns. It is made of durable brick red full-depth polyurethane, the safest, fastest and most comfortable surface available. It meets the highest standards of track and field's world governing body, the International Amateur Athletic Federation.
Cross Country Course - In 2006 our own cross country course located entirely on campus was opened. The new Princeton cross country course begins on the soccer fields located just over the Washington Road bridge. It winds through soy bean fields toward Route 1 and back around to the open soccer fields. The manicured grass loop measures one and a half miles and varies quite a bit in terrain. At the 1,000-meter mark you get a beautiful elevated vista of Princeton's campus. The men's course measures 8,000 meters while the women race over a 6,000 course. With its even footing, it is an absolutely terrific place to do longer interval training.

Where We Run - A list of over 35 courses in the Princeton area with descriptions, that Princeton uses to train on. Each is mapped out using gmaps pedometer.

Throwing Area - Princeton introduced a new outdoor throwing area in 2010. The area is located on campus, on West Windsor Fields. The throwing area is used for training and practice, and is the site of intercollegiate competition for the hammer throw. Bleachers are provided for spectators.

Caldwell Field House - Named in honor of Hall of Fame coach Charlie Caldwell ’25, the field house contains the Tigers’ locker and meeting rooms. Caldwell also houses the Tigers’ equipment and athletic training rooms.

Athletic Training Room - Princeton student-athletes receive the best in preventative and  rehabilitative care from the athletic training staff. The training room itself is spacious, encompassing nearly 3,000 square feet in the east wing of Caldwell Field House. Recent modifications permit the maximum efficiency of space and movement for both athletic trainers and athletes. The room is divided into four zones: hydrotherapy, treatment, first aid and taping and rehabilitation. Also included in this expansive training room are athletic trainers’ and physicians’ offices as well as private consulting rooms. The Princeton athletic training room is a model for the very best modern care in athletic medicine.
