Other Info:
The track is around the rugby pitch of Exmouth RFC and is in fair condition. The ground is owned by the Town Council but the rugby club has a long term lease on it with the exception of the track. Exmouth Harriers AAC rent the track for a peppercorn rent but are required to keep it maintained. The track is only given lane markings for a short period in the summer to facilitate the local school's sports day but even in winter there are faint markings. There is an old sign at the track saying that users should pay at the nearby Exmouth Sports Centre but these charges no longer apply. There used to be jumping pits and a steeplechase water jump but they have been grassed over.
