Come in from the cold and burn some rubber at the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory, home to one of the fastest indoor tracks in the world! Individual events range from 800 meters to 2 miles and are open to any athlete over 19 years of age. Your $20 entry fee entitles you to run as many races as you like. You can also team up with friends and run a relay.
New this year, we offer quick and easy online registration and fun themes for each night.
For this week's theme, we asked you to submit creative ideas and vote on them —and we have a tie! For the last night at the races of 2014, you have your pick: dress up to honor your favorite winter Olympic sport or athlete and/or dress up in any way that shows your support of LGBT athletes and the LGBT community..
