The Thursday Track Crew meets every Thursday at the Curtin-Burrowes entrance to Rec Hall at noon for a warm-up run to the season's track venue. You can meet us at the season's venue or run with the group from Rec Hall as a warm-up. Join the Club listserve  for the latest announcements about Thursday Track.

NOTE: For years we were allowed to use Penn State indoor and outdoor track facilities, but the university has been tightening up access to all their facilities and so it is either impossible or cost prohibitive to do so. We now run at two seasonal locations: During the summer months (second week of June through second-last week of August), we do our workouts at the State High track, which is behind the South Building on Westerly Parkway. The rest of the year, we use IM Fields on the north side of Park Avenue just east of the Law School building. (During the worst part of winter, we sometimes do our workouts on the roads around the services buildings near the IM Fields to the north of Park Avenue.) You can run from Rec Hall to the seasonal venue, or meet us there. Meet at venue any time after noon. Some runners jog over from Rec Hall and meet us there around 12:25. By then, everyone is warmed up and ready. 

LATE SUMMER UPDATE (8/29): Now that school is in session at State High, we will be doing our speed work on the Penn State IM Fields on the north side of Park Avenue just east of the Law School Building.
