Best Urban Track

Disch-Falk Field

The triangular area which includes Disch Faulk Field and UT Press is bordered by a broad sidewalk on all sides that makes an excellent walking/jogging track. One "lap" is almost a perfect mile. The terrain is well landscaped and surprisingly pleasant, with good trees and lamp posts for stretching. Plus, when the ball park is not in use, the stadium stairs make a fantastic place to do stamina training. But what really makes this place a favorite of ours is the evening entertainment. During the fall, you can jog to the sound of the Longhorn band booming out the "Wabash Cannonball," a truly invigorating experience, and during baseball season they let you stand by the sidelines free after the 6th or 7th inning. It puts a little spunk into your eight o'clock exercise.
