Western Runners Get First Laps on Highest Collegiate Indoor Track

GUNNISON, Colo. (Feb. 7, 2014) — This past week, Western's vaunted track stars got their first chance to take some laps in the university's amazing new Field House and Recreation Center.

Their verdict: Awesome! Runners said the high-tech surface felt great to their legs, and their eyes told the story as they wandered around the walls and rafters of their vast, new, 65,000-square-foot (just part of the new, 119,000-square-foot complex) practice and competition space.
