Smith's Indoor Track & Tennis Facility
Re-Opens to the Public Through the End of March
NORTHAMPTON, Mass. -- On Wednesday, March
3, after a three-month hiatus while the surface was re-finished, the
Smith College Indoor Track & Tennis Facility will be open again to
area residents for walking and running on weekdays from 6 to 8 a.m. The
public open hours will be in place through March 31.
The track inside the ITT is 200 meters in circumference -- seven laps
around the outside lane equals one mile. A rubber surface covers the
entire floor, including the track, and provides a cushion that can reduce
stress on the body.
Participants must enter and leave the ITT only through the glass doors
at the facility's entrance and may not go beyond the ITT track area.
Also, they will be required to wear clean shoes on the track and are
encouraged to use proper footwear and change directions frequently while
walking or running. The track will be monitored during the open hours.
Participants in the program will be allowed to park in the Ainsworth
parking lot, provided they leave by 8 a.m. The parking lot is located
on the lower section of College Lane.
