Year-round, the AATC hosts Tuesday night workouts. The workouts are coached interval workouts held on the University of Michigan Outdoor Track from April to October and the University of Michigan Indoor Track from November to March. The only exceptions are June 20 - July 25, 2017 (when we meet in Gallup Park) and December 19 and 26, 2017 (track is closed and we take a break). See schedule below.
At the front are talented and dedicated athletes but just as much a part of the workouts are new and long-time participants that run for fun, to stay in shape, to get back into shape, or are training for a personal best in an upcoming race.
The interval workouts are short and intense, which many people enjoy as a nice change from their longer, slower runs during other days of the week. The total distance of hard intervals in a workout is about 5 km (3.1 miles). The workouts are designed to improve your 5k and shorter track races ranging from 400 meters to 2 miles. The workouts will also help runners targeting longer races like 10k, half marathon, or marathon, by improving leg turnover, form, and stamina. And whether you race or not, everyone enjoys the fitness and comaraderie of the workouts.
Since the AATC has rented the UM Tracks for the exclusive use of the AATC adult workouts during the scheduled times, we ask that you follow the program described at the start of each workout and posted below. This is required for the safety of all participants and to make the organized workout possible.
So if you haven't been to a Tuesday night workout - give it a try. Nobody is too slow or too fast.
Outdoor workouts start April 4th 2017. We meet on the UM Outdoor Track just off of State Street south of Hoover Avenue. Enter the gate north of Yost Arena and drive about 100 yards. The address is 1150 S. State Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
Note that on June 20 and 27 and all of July, we will meet at the wooden bridge in Gallup Park (the one that cars can drive over). See schedule below.
Participants warm up on their own starting at around 6:30 p.m. and the workout starts at 7:00 p.m. Workouts are scheduled for AATC members; non-members are welcome to take a test drive but should join the AATC if they enjoy the workouts and the club.

Indoor workouts will start November 7th 2017. We will meet on the UM Indoor Track in the field house just off of State Street south of Hoover Avenue. Enter the gate north of Yost Arena and drive about 200 yards. The address is 1150 S. State Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
The indoor track opens at 7:00 p.m. and participants warm up on their own. The workout starts at 7:30 p.m.
