The GBTC Invitational indoor track meet is held each January at the Gordon Indoor Track Facility on the Harvard University campus at 95 North Harvard Street in Allston. While the meet is open to runners of all abilities — one goal of the meet is to provide road runners an introduction to the thrill of indoor racing — the meet is well-known to New England’s best track athletes as a place to find top-notch competition.

For the 2013 meet, the meet information brochure and meet entry instructions are available now. Other information such as the event list, the meet schedule, and the list of invitational events will appear hear soon.
