Well, the response from the facility director was that use of the track is not available "on an individual basis." So, I guess groups can reserve it....meaning sneaking in and acting casual is probably possible.
Which mean this little old lady will not even dream of using that track!
It's probably a liability thing -- they probably don't even know the liability policy but are giving the safe answer out of laziness/just in case. Doubt it has anything to do with being little, old, or a lady.
