Indoor Track to Public
MAILED: Nov. 4, 1999|
As part of its ongoing effort to better meet the needs of Chippewa Valley residents, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will open its indoor track in the Ade Olson Addition of the McPhee Physical Education Center to the public starting this month.
"We are always looking for ways we can make the community feel welcome and comfortable on this campus," said Chancellor Donald Mash. "We have a quality indoor track facility like no other in the area. After considering the needs of our community members, we are pleased to offer a service that is in great demand, particularly during the winter months. Community members are now invited to share our track with the university community."
The track will be available to members of the public November through February from 6 a.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
Tentative track hours for March through May are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 3 to 10 p.m. Sunday.
Members of the public can purchase passes for $15 a month, $60 for six months or $100 for one year. Passes will be available between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. from the Information Desk in the McPhee Physical Education Center.
The availability of the track may change on a day-to-day basis due to other scheduled university-sponsored events. To check on track availability, call (715) 836-2546 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. or (715) 836-5910 before 8 a.m. or after 3 p.m.
