Is There a demand Here for a Track Forum? (Read 136 times)

bap


    There seem to be a few age groupers here interested in track but I've found that there are very few resources or forums for the more mature (physically and mentally) trackster, especially for a newbie like me.

     

    I strongly believe that interest in track events is growing among older runners as an alternative to road-racing and that an "All Things Track" forum would be a welcome addition to this community.

      I agree.

       

      One could always start with a user group too.

          It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

            Oh, you crazy Brits!

            There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

              Which field event will be the first to be discussed?

                Seems it's trying to lure people away from hammerthrowingahead.com.

                  "C" is for cookie.  That's good enough for me.

                    A track-XC forum or user group could be fun.

                      Also, I resent that being a post-collegiate and masters only group. I'm the former but I still don't like the discrimination/segregation.

                        That would be a decision up to eric Smile and out of the hands of us mere mortals.

                          Actually I believe that is a group setting that the owner can change.

                               I'm going to go into such forum and talk mile racing and marathon racing just for spite!

                              I like when track talk breaks out but I need another group like I need a hole in my head (or like I need to run another marathon.)
