Capital District NY Indoor and Outdoor Running Tracks

Updated on January 21, 2012

Indoor and Outdoor Tracks in Albany, NY

Albany, NY has is share of extreme weather from -20 degrees in the winter to 100 in the summer. This weather can take the most seaoned runner indoors. Many of us have a love-hate relationship with the treadmill. It certaintly has its benefits but running in place for an extended period of time can certaintly take a mental toll. I am often asked about places to run inside and so I have made a list.

If it is your first time going, please call ahead to verify time, price and availability. Some facilities require memberships while others allow day passes for community members. College campuses often close their facilities during school breaks and on energy saving weekends.
