Track Etiquette

  • Lanes 1 to 4 are for training athletes who are doing timed or measured workouts. Lanes 5 to 8 are for all other walkers and runners. Strollers and wheelchairs please use lanes 7 and 8.

  • Nanaimo Track & Field Club athletes have priority use of lanes 1-4 and the straight track during reserved times.

  • CHILDREN must be supervised at all times.

  • SKATEBOARDS, ROLLER BLADES and BICYCLES of any kind are not permitted. This is for everyone’s safety and to protect the track surface from damage or excess wear.

  • DOGS are not permitted in the facility.

  • The standard direction around the track is counter clockwise. If you choose to run or walk clockwise, please do so in Lane 8 and yield to others.

  • If you hear someone yell “track", a runner is coming up fast behind you and would like you to step quickly to the outside so they can pass.

  • Always look before changing lanes or crossing the track to avoid collisions.

  • Check the NTFC website for times when the track will be closed to the general public for track & field practices, track meets or other special events.  See "Availability Calendar" @  Check "Rentals" for booking information.
