Other Info:
The track appears to be 300m but is in very poor condition and is badly overgrown. The infield is however a reasonably well-maintained grass football pitch. The entrance to the track is from Cregoe Street. Although the track is outside the immediate area of the school buildings, it is associated with St. Thomas's Church of England Junior & Infant School, Great Colmore Street, BIRMINGHAM.
