Most highschool tracks are made of soft dirt/gravel mix but I suppose they may be no better than the paved trails you are currently running on. Maybe you should give the treadmill a try if you can accept the indoors conditions and the physics of the treadmill.
Treadmills are just as bad. Use the eliptical instead for non-impact.
