Boyce Campus Outdoor Fitness Trail

The Boyce Fitness Trail, a 1.7 mile course, is a motivational self-guided jogging game which provides a total conditioning routine and a health education program in one imaginative package.

This program is designed to encourage people to begin jogging and exercising by providing the basis for any community or organization fitness plan.

The Jogging Course also embodies a unique fitness scoring and achievement program, making it a favorite of conditioned athletes as well as beginning joggers and families.

The Boyce Fitness Trail was made possible through grants by the Western Pennsylvania Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA and by the Wells Fargo Bank of San Francisco, CA.
