Clear Bag Policy: In an effort to improve fan safety, Stanford Athletics now has a Clear Bag Policy for all athletic events. This policy limits the size and types of bags that are permitted inside athletic venues. It is not a restriction on many of the items that fans have brought into the stadium in the past, but it will enhance safety at Stanford events as a clear bag is easily and quickly searched. More information can be found here

Media credentials:
Media credential and interview requests must be made through the Stanford athletics communications office. The track and field contact is David Kiefer. Contact him at dkiefer@stanford.edu.

Cobb Track & Angell Field:
Angell Field was originally dedicated on March 13, 1935, and named in honor of Dr. Frank Angell, who headed the Faculty Athletic Committee. It was originally built at a cost of $26,000. In 1996, the new, nine-lane track was completed, and the infield was renamed Otis Chandler Infield. In 1998, the Cathy and Dink Templeton Plaza, the bleachers, and the Payton Jordan Plaza were completed. The facility is home to both the men's and women's track and field teams, and is open every day for campus recreation.

The track is a 400-meter, nine-lane, all-weather track named in honor of the Charles Cobb Family. All field event competition venues except the hammer throw are contained within the track on the Otis Chandler Infield. There are multi-direction runways for the pole vault, long jump and triple jump.
