Just curious if anyone knows of any schools that have an 'open to the public' 1/4 mile track. I know there are a TON of schools around here and it seems that they are all locked up unless you attend the school. I have tried to search all those around me, I live out past the summit and have checked most of the area between here and I 264. Just a thought, i'm looking to do some interval training and speed work and Tom Sawyer park is starting to get old. Thanks for the help.

Venture inside I-264. You won't get hurt You should be able to run at Bellarmine University. Also, off of Floyd Street by UofL, there is a nice track that I believe is 1/4 mile, but it is not a traditional track. You will just have to see it. Of course Seneca Park has a great mile long oval track, but again, it is not the standard 400 meter track.

Male High School has a wonderful track. I am not sure if it is locked or not. Between private and public schools, there must be easily 30 high schools with tracks in Jefferson County, plus those in surrounding suburbs, and also some middle/elementary schools that have tracks.

I was going to say Bellarmine as well. They have a very nice track.

Well...tried Bellarmine and campus security put a quick end to that. They said that since they redid the track facility, it is closed to the general public. However, I did like the park next to the track, nice paved path to run on with a few hills that made for a good workout. Any other ideas on the track issue?

That is no good! Have you been to the Seneca Park track yet? It is a nice oval path about 1 and 1/8 mile long, and about 10 feet wide. There are no lanes marked, however.

Surely there has to be a local HS that is lenient about it. try male or waggenor.

How about the "Louisville Loop"? It's not a school but is a levee trail that is mile marked around the Greenwood road area.
