FLRC is pleased to announce that club members may now run on the Ithaca High School track in the mornings before school starts. IHS custodians are unlocking the track starting at 5 AM and the track will remain available through 7 AM. Thanks to ICSD for working with us to reopen the track for running!
Sports practices may start at 7 AM, and if so, anyone running on the track at that time would need to leave, and regardless, the school may start using the track for gym class starting at 8:30 AM.
We talked with ICSD about using the track after school in the afternoons and evenings, and on weekends, but there are too many sports practices and games for there to be regular hours. Some games even start later than might be expected—a recent lacrosse game went until 10 PM. Nevertheless, ICSD is investigating how to make the track accessible to runners on evenings and weekends when it’s not in use.
Summer hours aren’t currently in the cards due to planned maintenance work. But if that doesn’t end up happening or finishes early, we’ll see what we can do to provide access.
Much as with using Barton Hall’s track in the winter, you need to be an FLRC club member to use the IHS track. If you’re not already a member, join today.
