ABOUT JDL FAST TRACK (www.jdlfasttrack.com)
JDL Fast Track, one of the premier indoor track and field facilities in the southeast, is the brainchild of two former Wake Forest University runners and current real estate developers, David Shannon and Craig Longhurst, who identified and fulfilled a need for an area indoor track facility for use by colleges, high schools, local track clubs and youth track organizations. The privately owned, dedicated indoor track and field facility, which opened in January 2012, houses a 200‐meter oval track with a Mondotrack FTX surface -- the same surface that will be used at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Field event areas include two pole vault runways, two long/triple jump runways, one high jump apron and one throws area. The facility also includes a 100‐meter warm‐up track, office and meeting‐room space, a training room, and hospitality suites for coaches' or conference officials' meetings at large events.
