Ongoing Group Runs

Sundays at 9:00 am at the F Street Bridge in Salida.

These runs are free and open to all. Paces and distances will be decided by those who show up each week. The group runs are designed primarily to offer runners an opportunity to run with other people.

Salida High School Track

The new Salida High School track facility now has public access every day of the year from 6 am to 8 pm.

There is a locking turnstile on the west side of the track near the school that allows entry and public use, unless school is in session, conditions are unsafe, or the facility is being rented or used for a school function.
Check it out! Read more about using the Salida High School Track
