400m “May Field” Running Track Released on Watopia

400m “May Field” Running Track Released on Watopia

Zwift has just released an update which includes a 400-meter run track on Watopia.

Named “May Field” (get it?), the blue track can be seen on the left as you begin riding Ocean Boulevard away from downtown Watopia.

According to the route note, this “ultra-fast oval is covered in a mix of urethane and sand from Watopia’s very own beaches.”

This is a one-way track, and there is a new start area just before the lap line. Runners can choose to turn right and exit onto Ocean Boulevard.

Here are a few more shots of the beautiful new track:

Help the non-runner. What is May Field?

If running on a treadmill wasn’t boring enough, Zwift has recreated the outdoor version of monotony: running around a track!

Track workouts are an essential part of any legitimate training plan

I’m looking forward to using it. I enjoy structured track interval sessions. I’m sure they’ll be offering structured track workouts in the future. Another positive step forward!

I love the idea. It might not be for everyone but a lot of people will get great use out of it.

I like it! Runners requested when Zwift leadership asked what we (runners) wanted to be included in Zwift several months ago. Well Zwift delivered. I don’t think is for every runner but many will enjoy it.

Ditto alpe du Zwift for cyclists. I love it and so do many others, but not every indoor rider uses it. To each their own.

I’m so glad zwift take care about the real important things now.
Who needs changing gear before you start the game? I tiny little thing every computer game in the world have, but not zwift.
But hey, we have a 400m track for running now, thanks zwift, well done

Still hard to belive you have to reload the entire game if you want to end a ride to start a different route

Too bad it’s not a regulation track with at least 6 lanes for future racing events and staggered starts. BTW, if requests from runners already resulted in creation of a new track, what’s the justification for continuing to hold back on creation of a velodrome for cyclists, which is an item that has been requested for a very long time now? I loved the velodrome when I subscribed to Bkool and it was (is) extremely popular. Call it the MinDome or whatever you want — just give us one already!

When is it available? I’ve checked and it isn’t listed (I’m using the Android version btw and haven’t had an update since the 12th December)

I think it’s awesome. I wish they’d bulldoze the middle of the track though so we could see other people running around it (too much graphical overhead? I don’t think so). Currently, although you’re running in 400m circles it doesn’t really feel like a track at all with all that crap in the middle.

I love all of the greenery. It does not feel as boring as a normal track. How do I get out of it once I am in it? Is there an exit? I am new to Zwift.

Would it be possible to have an oval track for cycling/ cyclists??
