How to map
Often mapping tracks as a way will mean looping back on yourself (the shape of many racetracks) This is conflicting with the idea of allowing areas 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:
Tags to use in combination
lanes=* (where they are painted on).
