The track is 2.7 kms around the perimeter of the Horsham Racecourse Reserve and has 3-4 Pieces of equipment at each fitness station.

How do the Outdoor Workout Stations work?
The Adrian Hatcher Fitness Track is a path equipped with stations distributed along the length of the Racecourse for exercising the body and promoting good health. If you're looking to spice up your outdoor walking or running workouts, the Adrian Hatcher Fitness Track and Outdoor Workout Stations will provide a complete balanced workout, increased strength and coordination and better cardiovascular health. By moving from station to station, you'll keep your body challenged and your mind interested. Each station builds upper body, leg and back strength, enhancing agility, flexibility, endurance and cardiovascular health. Don't forget your water bottle.
