Weekly Track Workout


Tuesday Mar 13 - 8:30 PM - MIT Indoor Track - Johnson Athletic Center - 120 Vassar St Cambridge


For the remainder of the winter, our workouts will take place at the MIT Indoor Track/Johnson Athletic Center in Cambridge.  This is the same building that houses the MIT Indoor Pool (Zesiger Center). 

There are actually two entrances to the building.  One, on Vassar St, requires you to walk down a long hallway, past the indoor pool to the security desk.  The second entrance faces the courtyard, across from the Kresge Auditorium, near the MIT Student Union.  Whichever works best for you but the security desk is nearest the courtyard entrance

The track is on the second floor of the building.   To gain access you need to get past the security desk.  You will need to tell the people at the Security Desk your name and that you are with the Somerville Road Runners.
