Hinkle Fieldhouse (MAP )

Meet at Gate 1. This run starts at the Fieldhouse and goes along 52nd St to the Central Canal Towpath, which has a nice, crushed limestone surface. The runs typically head southwest along the canal. It is an out and back course so you can run whatever distance you choose! On any given day, there will be different paces and distances, so there is a distance and pace for everyone. Afterwards, we typically hang around and socialize. Showers and lockers are sometimes available at the Fieldhouse.

 

Downtown YMCA at the Athenaeum (MAP )

Meet in the lobby of the YMCA, which is inside the east entrance of the building at 401 E. Michigan St. (downtown corner of Michigan St. and New Jersey St.). Lockers and showers are available to participants in the run and walk. However, please come early as you will need to sign in prior to the run/walk so that a list can be given to the front desk each week letting them know who to give access to the facility. Bring your own lock for the lockers. Wallet lockers are also available. There are no bathrooms along the route; however, the Antheneum has restrooms. We use two general routes shown here and here .

We will socialize at the next door Rathskeller Biergarten once a month after selected run/walks.  Announcements will be made the week prior to the run.

 

Runners Forum in Broad Ripple (MAP )

Meet inside the Runners Forum in Broad Ripple. There are multiple places to run or walk, including the Central Canal Towpath and Monon Trail.

 

Saturday Morning Deck (MAP )

We meet at the wooden deck next to the Monon Trail at the corner of E. Westfield Blvd and Winthrop Ave. in Broadripple. (This is next to the Brugge Brasserie.) People will be running or walking various speeds and distances. Six to ten miles are the most common running distances (up to 6 miles for the walkers) during the winter with some even longer distances common during the summer, but we tend to run or walk an out and back route north then south along the Monon Trail, so all distances (including shorter distances) are possible.

 

Benjamin Harrison YMCA (MAP)

Meet on the east side of the parking lot near Lee Road. Here is a map showing various running routes.

Courses are available from 2 to 13.1 miles. Six miles of the course is inside Fort Harrison State Park. You must have a pass to enter the park. The daily pedestrian entry fee is $2 per person. An annual entrance permit which is good at all Indiana state parks is available for $50. These annual passes run from January 1st to December 31st. Please note: The park fee schedule is subject to change. Check the current fee schedule here.
