Weekly Runs

Club runs are noncompetitive and are open to members, guests, and runners of all levels of experience and ability. Nonmembers are welcome but are asked to join the club and sign a liability waiver if they participate on a regular basis. There is no fee for the runs, and no facilities are provided. For more information, contact the club at board@slctrackclub.org.


Tuesday Speedwork:
September only: Start Time 6:30 AM 

October-May: Start Time 6:00 PM
June-August: Start Time 6:00 AM

Speed workouts sessions are held at the Highland High School (1700 E 2100 S) track. We meet at the Garden Center parking lot at the NE corner of Sugar House Park  at 1602 E  2100 S, just before the Highland High School fence line. 

We typically warm up with a lap around Sugar House Park and then head down to the track for the workout. In the winter the track is covered in snow and ice so the workouts are conducted in the park. We are a prompt group, so if you don’t want to miss us, please be on time. 

On occasion we break from regularity and have a workout at a different location. It is always posted on our calendar and a reminder is often posted on Facebook for the change. All are welcome and encouraged to come. The workout posted is a guideline, but it can always be adapted to meet your needs. If you are wanting to build some speed this is the run for you.

1st Wednesday Fun Run—New in 2019!

Join the SLC Track Club for a fun run on the first Wednesdays of the month. We meet at a brewery, run about six miles before hanging out at the brewery.

Join for just the run, just the beers, or (preferably 😉) both! 


Thursday Morning Trail Runs

Satisfy your inner mountain goat!

This trail run will take place every Thursday morning at 6:30 am starting from various trailheads around the University/Avenues area. We are a dog-friendly group, so if Fido needs to get his miles in as well feel free to bring him along.

Keep in mind that weather impacts trail conditions and there may be mornings where we decide to run on the road. The appropriate gear can also make your sunrise trail run much more enjoyable:

  • Good pair of trail running shoes
  • Headlamp to light your path
  • Yaktrax for snowy/icy trail conditions

We look forward to seeing you on the Salt Lake City Back Track!
