          TRACK REFURBISHMENT TO START…

          Fabulous news… the Track Refurbishments, are starting… Monday 3rd November for approximately 7 weeks. This will involve the ground work (infield, outer grass) but the new track surface will be laid in April/May 2015 as we have missed the “good weather” window this year. We will be open for business during this first phase of the works but with limited facilities – only part of the home straight & grass bank. The clubhouse is still open throughout all works as a base for road runs etc. We apologise for the inconvenience but think you will agree, it will be worth it as we will soon have a fantastic Athletics Arena. Once the works start, we shall update members of progress each week.

          Coaches who coach under 18′s, please take note of the email from our Welfare Officer regarding road runs, more important than ever now!

          Athletes, please ensure you check in with your coach(s) so you know what you’re doing. For most of the younger kids/dasher groups, we will utilise the facility as much as possible and hopefully no cancelling necessary.
