Other Info:
This cinder 440y track was behind the Aldershot Military Stadium synthetic track where there is now a car park and they were one of the closest pairs of tracks in the UK - only those at Jarrow and possibly Ampleforth are closer. It was built in 1945 to serve the Mons Officer Cadet Barracks which are long since defunct. In the early 2000s, it was in fairly good condition but the surface was a little uneven and not considered suitable for sprint training. As no throws training is allowed within the Military Stadium, hirers of the track used to have access to both tracks. It is not clear which of the straights was the home one. It is thought to have been the one next to the stream that runs parallel to the location as there was a slight squared off area near the throwing cage but members of AFD tended to view the other straight as the home one when training.
