As a popular pastime in Melbourne, runners are often seen about the streets, the parks, and the gym. For those who seek to take their training to the next level, a trip to the track is often sought out.
Yet, it's also a reality that 'results may vary' when it comes to some tracks that may not have much support in terms of training buddies, staff & Co.
For those who seek to train with a team, the Sandringham Athletics Track ran by the Sandringham Athletics Club offers a good mix of an informal setting - where rolling up to go for a quick run on the track costs just $2 - while also offering a wider group of committed runners and trainers to engage with when seeking to build running skills.
Best of all, the track itself is one that is well-maintained and sharp. Whether someone who just aspires to a casual set of sprints once a week - or perhaps aspires to Tokyo 2020! - the Sandringham Athletics Track and Club is well worth a look-in.
