Other Info:
The track was originally cinder (redgra) and built in about the late 1970s. It was upgraded to a Spurtan BS synthetic track in 1995/6 with the help of the first Lottery Sports Award for an athletics project and was first used in 1996. The track is owned and run by Tamworth AC who have a 99 year lease. They are completely independent and do not receive any grants. To help swell club funds they hire out their large pavilion which contains a bar and a function room for weddings, parties and even funerals. The entrance to the track is on the roundabout with Marlborough Way (B5440) and the A5 and is signposted "Sports Stadium". The track has also been referred to as Tamworth Stadium.
