THE NEW TRACK IS READY!
There are still things to complete and we are working with the contractor to fit these things in when available. This means there are some things we may have to do on a short-term basis… BUT at least we have an athletics facility!
Infield – The grass in the infield has just been cut and there are a huge amount of cuttings that now need to be removed. Please help us limit the amount of grass that gets on to the track by avoiding the infield. Please could our throwers change in & out of their throwing shoes near the throwing area?
Cost of a session – We remind our members that now we are back on the track, the cost of a session is £2 for a Club Session and £3 for an Academy Session.
Club Policy – Now is a good time to remind ourselves of club rules whilst we use our athletic facility. These can be viewed here: Club Etiquette
First Session – The first session on the new track will be during the morning of Saturday 15th June (Academy + Club)
Return Party – Tuesday 18th June we welcome back all of our squads that have been training in exile at Bristol and the local area. There will be chips and cake in the clubhouse to celebrate everybody’s return.
First Competition – The first competition on the new track will be the Lower YDL on June 23rd.
Thank you – To Bristol & West Athletic Club and Gloucester Athletic Club for your support in allowing our athletes to use your facilities during these testing times. Also to all our athletes, parents, coaches, officials and members who have patiently waited for this moment.
Its time to make some history. Good luck to you all!
