Abstract

Running during the winter months in Worcester can be very dangerous; the streets are often icy and slick. Our goal was to design a model for an indoor athletic facility that was self-sustaining and that faculty and students could use for practice when weather conditions were unfavorable. We found that a facility housing a fitness center and an indoor turf field as well as an indoor track could generate enough revenue to be self-sustaining.
