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.
