About Irwin Belk Track
Campbell dedicated Irwin Belk Track and Clarence E. Roberts Field Complex on April 27, 2012. The program's first home meet since 1987, the Irwin Belk Open, followed the dedication on April 28, 2012.
The state-of-the-art facility includes an eight, 42-inch lanes on a polyurethane surface and features a water jump for the steeple chase, high-jump “D” area, pole vault runway, two shot put rungs and a discus/hammer ring.
There is one long runway adjacent to the home stretch with a sand pit on each end to allow for wind direction changes.
Dr. Irwin "Ike" Belk's generosity sponsored the Irwin Belk Track and the Fighting Camel sculpture infront of Gore Arena/Pope Convocation Center at Campbell University.
Dr. Clarence E. Roberts received the Campbell Presidential Medallion in 2000, awarded to individuals whose lives exemplify the Christian character, morality and commitment demonstrated by each of Campbell’s presidents, after serving as a dentist in Dunn, N.C., and serving on the original Board of Directors of the First Federal Savings Bank in 1967. Jane Davis, daughter to of Dr. Roberts, and her husband, Paul, represented the Roberts family at the dedication ceremony.
