A race track for running, cycling and other non-motorised sports such as horses, greyhounds.

Note: For motorised sports use highway=raceway.

How to map

Use on a way Way or a multipolygon Area.

Areas?

Often mapping tracks as a way Way means looping back to the start (the shape of many racetracks), forming a closed way Closed way. This is conflicting with the idea of allowing areas Area for this tag. It's currently unclear/undecided whether data consumers should treat closed ways as areas for this tag. We're listing areas on Map Features, and the default OSM Mapnik/Carto stylesheet displays a complete in area, because it currently handles all tags of the leisure key the same.[1]

So it's advised to always add an area=yes/no tag in the case of closed ways. This is not necessary for multipolygons since they are always handled as areas.

A typical sports ground with an oval 800m track around a ballsport pitch can be mapped with a multipolygon for the oval track (sport=athletics), the pitch inside (sport=*ball), and further tracks for jumping etc., see example:
