This stunning facility is the culmination of a successful public/private partnership between The Town of Mammoth Lakes and the newly expanded Mammoth Track Club (incorporating the High Sierra Striders running club). At a cost of $2.3 Million, construction began for Phase I of this facility on July 9, 2012, and was completed on November 17, 2012. 

The Whitmore Track and Sports Field is an all-weather, 9-lane polyurethane running track, with a full-size synthetic turf infield that will serve to enhance Mammoth Lakes’ reputation as the premier high-altitude training destination for a multitude of endurance sports and recreation.
