Welcome to AvoidingTreadmills.com, a place for Boston runners to
communicate to each other about the conditions on the ground. Each running route on this site acts as 'chat room' where a single topic is discussed - the current conditions of the course in question. New courses and new updates depend on all of us to add a favorite running course
, point our runner friends to that course chat room, and give updates ourselves on the conditions of the course after we run, drive, walk, and even fly over!
This service is free, requires no membership, email, or personal information of any sort. The only requirement is the charity of your time (to update others on the conditions you ran in - it takes about 10 seconds) and the desire to run outdoors whenever possible (a quick review of your course can tell you if the conditions are safe).
The success of this site depends on all of us to keep our routes updated and to spread the word! Add your favorite running routes,
point your fellow runners to the update course form, and
check back regularly (especially after a snow storm!). Though Boston is currently featured, simply add a course in your area to get your city started on AT!
Now let's go for a run ... outside!
