On Tuesday evenings, PARC runners meet at on the Stanford campus for interval training.
We’ll start at 6:30 pm and do warm up drills (high knees/butt kicks/carioca), and strides. Meeting spot is the Stanford track (Angell Field) by the Stanford flag pole between the stands. The track is located at Galvez St. & Campus Drive on the Stanford campus. Track parking lot on Galvez St. is free after 4 pm.
