Morehouse College comes full circle with Edwin Moses track dedication



Morehouse College hosted a dedication ceremony on Tuesday for their newly renovated Edwin C. Moses Track & B.T Harvey Stadium Football Field.


The track which opened in 1983, had since fallen into disrepair due to lack of use by both teams over the years. It's resurfaced only once since 1996 - ahead of Olympics where they played host under then-campus facility at Candler Park Arena before going back out into city streets again after completion phase 1 .


The new multi-million dollar improvements will allow Morehouse to start hosting track meets.


Moses, a 1978 graduate of Morehouse, became one of the most dominant figures in track history. Between 1977 and 1987, he won 107 consecutive finals and set the world recordin the event four times.
