View Full Version : Need workout in Chapel Hill, no car

I will be in Chapel Hill, NC next week, staying at the Carolina Inn - attending a conference hosted by the University.

I've tried searching for masters workouts or even just a lap pool, but I don't have access to a vehicle and most of the workouts I found were in Raleigh-Durham - close for a vehicle but not to walk.

I do need my fix of a swim workout, ideally two, and can make my own if neccessary, but would love an early morning masters team to practice with.

Anybody in that area know what I might be able to do?

thanks so much!

You are a 12-15 minute stroll from Koury Natatorium through the nation's most beautiful and prestigious campus. There are many workouts offered during the week. The Carolina Inn is very nice and might even offer you a lift. There is also bus service to South Campus, although you'd be just as quick walking from the Carolina Inn.

Better yet, walk there, and ask them to pick you up after practice so you don't have to walk up the big hill on the way home. Enjoy!

After your workout, if you could write a quick 8-10 page paper for one of their football players, that'd be great.

You could also easily hop on a bus and swim with DAMA in central Durham. We have a great bus system and I ride it frequently.

If you swam at night with us, I'm sure someone would drive you back, as we have some people who live in or near Chapel Hill.

I coach the Friday evening practice and I'd drive you back.

Another great offer, thanks!!! I will try to pull it off.

North Carolina is showing great hospitality, and I haven't even arrived yet!!

Had a great workout this week with the masters team at Koury Natatorium on the campus of UNC - the walk across campus before and after warmed me up and stretched me out, and the campus is beautiful ; thanks everyone for your help!!
