Other Info:
The track was originally a 3M Tartan surface and built for the 1970 Commonwealth Games and so was one of the first synthetic ones in the UK. It was relaid in about 1994 and again in 1999. There is a separate throws area, an indoor straight, a free weights room and a weights machine room.

Last update: 28/04/1999
