It's been a habit since high school. and every place I've lived has a decent stadium near by to run on.

I've seen nice stadiums on tv for West Lake and I've driven by a decent high school stadium off of I-35 between and Parmer and Howard Lane.

In 78750 (183/McNeil), does anyone know any high schools with good stands to run?
The Westwood and McNeil high school football bleachers seem to be small and only metal; while the West Lake H.S. stadium seems to be concrete and formidable (perfect but too far for me to drive to).

I also remember seeing one in front of Avery Ranch and Davis Springs. RRISD?

Also, are the staidums open to the public?

Did you try Murchison MS off Far West / Mopac? Running track, no bleachers but a steep hill that many people run up. The hill is a major Austin attraction whenever it snows in the wintertime (once every 3-4 years)...

Also has UT's intramural hand gliding class.

Most of the tracks at the HS's and Middle Schools have public access - with only wheels banned (no strollers, bikes, skates, etc.). However, I've never seen public access for any of the few stadiums in town. TX School for the deaf has a small stadium and you can go to the admin office and sign a waiver to use their facilities.
