About the Program
The Bowdoin College indoor track and field teams are one segment of the phenomenal track & field program at the school. Bowdoin competes in one of the most prestigous conferences in the nation, the NESCAC, and consistently is one of the best teams in New England. The Polar Bears can boast numerous All-Americans, most recently Andrew Combs '06 (800 meters) and the Distance Medley Relay team (Combs, Owen McKenna '07, Steve Bartus '08 and Greydon Foil '05) at the 2005 National Championship.

Farley Field House, the home of the Bowdoin Indoor Track & Field teams, was built in 1987. Designed by a committee including Olympic marathon gold medalist (and Bowdoin alumnus) Joan Benoit Samuelson, it houses a 200 meter, six-lane Rekortan polyurethane track, two long and triple jump pits, two pole vault boxes, and a high jump area. Bowdoin throwers enjoy two throwing circles and a championship throwing net, where athletes practice shot put, javelin, discus, hammer, and weight throwing. The facility has hosted the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships on two occasions - 1989 and 1993 - and has hosted several regional championships.
