The University of Manitoba held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday to begin the construction of its new $46-million Active Living Centre. The 4-storey, 100,000-square-foot facility will feature a high-performance training facility for elite athletes, a state-of-the-art 200-metre indoor running track, and a 12-metre climbing wall. The open-concept centre, with a glass-exterior design, will also house an Applied Research Centre; a workout, strength, and conditioning facility; and a gathering area for students.
