UNI's track and field teams compete outdoors at the Mark Messersmith Outdoor Track and Field Complex, located across from the UNI-Dome, on the corner of 19th and Hudson Road.

The complex, which combined with the UNI-Dome gives UNI one of the finest combination of indoor and outdoor facilities in America, opened in Spring 1998. In its inaugural season, the complex hosted the first annual Northern Iowa Open, and the Missouri Valley Conference Outdoor Championships, won by the Panther men.

The University's investment in this new surface gives the advantage of training and competing under ideal conditions any time of the year.

The 400-meter, eight-lane track is made of the latest state-of-the-art polyurethane surface. The track surrounds a field event area that features a steeplechase water jump, two pits each for the long and triple jump, dual throw rings for the weights, a discus/hammer cage and full pour takeoffs for the pole vault, long jump and triple jump.
