Westchester Track Club

The Westchester Track Club is run by my old friend Mike Barnow.  His weekly track workouts were my first real taste of track work!  He's coached many of the top runners locally and nationally.

The Westchester Track Club was founded in 1973 by Mike Barnow, who has coached this Westchester, NY club for almost 30 years. The Westchester Track Club is a two-tiered club for elite and recreational runners. The nationally-registered track team (formerly Puma) consists of a multinational group of Olympic aspirants. The recreational group meets on Wednesday evenings (during the months of April through November) at White Plains High School for structured interval workouts. All are welcome to join.

Armory Track & Field Center

The Armory NYC is many things to its hundreds of thousands of annual visitors—a grand old fortress building in northern Manhattan, one of the country's fastest indoor tracks, the future home of the National Track & Field Hall of Fame, and so much more! Take a tour through this site and discover the Armory.

The Armory stands as a brilliant jewel in the center of Washington Heights, a diverse community in northern Manhattan. Built as a training center for the National Guard in 1909, it became a venue for many of the city's biggest events, including track & field meets by the 1920s. In the sixties, the Armory was the unrivaled center for track & field competitions in greater New York. But with the economic crises of the seventies and the scourge of homelessness in the eighties, the Armory was converted to a homeless shelter, housing over 1,800 beds. By 1987, New York track & field was driven from its historic home.

The centerpiece of the Armory is its Olympic-class Track & Field Center. The 200-meter MONDO banked track is the only facility of its kind within a 50-mile radius of New York City.

The track currently hosts 90 meets annually, with between 500 and 5,000 competitors per meet. Last year, more than 350,000 athletes, coaches, parents and fans from 1,000 high schools and 36 states visited the Armory. Among New York City schools alone, nearly 50 high schools without their own facilities use the track and field center for regular track practice. The Armory track website (www.armorytrack.com) presents exhaustive results and records data from meets at the Armory.

The National Track and Field Hall of Fame will, at long last, give a home to the memory and celebration of the greatest U.S. track and field athletes of all time.

Sharing the majestic 168th Street Armory with one of the great indoor tracks in the country, the Hall of Fame will become an international destination in the historic Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City. Through its three floors of exhibits and its Interactive Learning Center, it will revel in the sport of track and field and honor the spirit of participation from which champions have emerged. And it will be a place for athletes to take pride in their sport, for families to explore, and for anyone with a will to compete to be inspired.
