About the Larson Track & Field Complex and Vance Butler Field Events Area

The Larson Track & Field Complex and Vance Butler Field Events Area was built on the east side of Grange Avenue across from the Elmen Center and is located just north of the Morstad Soccer Field. Construction preparation began with the trees lining the east side of Grange Avenue being removed and the existing hill reduced.

The Complex and Field Events Area will serve as the new training home of the Augustana track and field program. Located between 33rd and 37th streets, across from the Elmen Center, the new facility will feature an eight-lane, 300-meter Beynon surface track; long jump and triple jump runway and pole vault; throws area and 100 yards of interior turf.

Linda Larson provided the lead gift for the new on-campus track to honor the memories of her father, William "Billy" Larson, and her sister, Kathie Larson.
