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 preliminary on a node Node, or if possible (e.g. running around the track with your GPS, or aerial imagery) preferably on a way Way

Areas?

Often mapping tracks as a way Way will mean looping back on yourself (the shape of many racetracks) 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 fills in area, perhaps because it handles all tags of the leisure key the same.

So it's advised to always add an area=yes/no tag in the case of closed ways.

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:
