The Stadium “Ciudad de Torremolinos” 8 lane Mondo Sportrack athletics track, forms part of the Sport Village of Torremolinos and is located on the edge of the town. This complex was built in 1997 and has since been refurbished within the last year. Facilities also include a sports hall and an adjacent gymnasium with weight training equipment: free weights and machines. The infield is used for football so no hammer throwing is permitted but discus, javelin are are allowed in the afternoon.

All these facilities are controlled by the Municipal Council of Torremolinos in the Costa del Sol region of Spain, just 15 minutes from Malaga airport.
