Is there a public running track in New York City

Postby 2011Cycle » Thu Jul 28, 2011 12:32 pm

I am a sprinter and will be attending school in NYC. Is there a public running track in NYC or either of the boroughs?
Thanks

But if you're ever interested in distance running, I'd recommend Prospect Park. It is a runner's paradise.

Thank you

East River Park looks like the closet to the village.

My distance running is limited to a 400 meters -- 800 meters max.

This is, by the way, the very first google result.

Riverbank State Park up around 138th St. This is probably the most convenient if you're in Upper Manhattan (e.g. Columbia area).

Not sure what school, but there's a track on the roof of Coles that might be more appropriate for sprints.

Also, there's little need to be in the closet in the village. The deep south, it ain't.

Have you not heard of the Armory Track? I thought the meets that are held there are famous. Right now their website is in the process of being relaunched. The interim one is http://ny.milesplit.com/ .

The new website will be armorytrack.com

Even if you don't train there, I think if you visited you could pick up some good information about tracks to practice on.

Also, the superrunners stores and the nike stores usually have information about where to run in the city.
