Reggie.

What's the deal with the hole, former parking lot outside of BU? I saw a picture calling it new balance field. What's the deal and where do they expect us to park this winter season?

Reggie for distance, Harvard for sprinting. The bank is steeper at Harvard.

It's being turned into a field hockey field. I think Plans involve making it elevated and parking underneath it but don't quote me on that.

Indoor track is my favorite season. I've lived in the Boston area my whole life and I've run on all three tracks (4 if you count the old BU) countless times through HS, college and beyond. I agree with another poster that Reggie is superior for distance and Harvard better for sprints. I like the air quality in Reggie better also. I've had numerous back problems during my life and for some reason my back always hurts when I run at Harvard. Perhaps the surface is harder.

Just for fun. I agree that BU new is far superior. BU old was also crazy fast and I can't explain why. The air in BU old was obviously horrible and I used to hack up a lung for 3 days after racing there. But I ran my best times through college at BU old so I love it (I even kept a piece of the track as a memento). My current mile PR was run at Harvard post collegiate. 1K PR at BU old in college. 3K PR at Reggie and 5K PR at BU.

I don't know, but if we were to hold a race between the two, where would we hold it?

If running 800 at 1:52 at BU how might adjust for Harvard and Reggie?

“ …. at BU old so I love it (I even kept a piece of the track as a memento)”

Gad, I am such a geek I think that is cool. I spent many many hours in the old Armory.
