Athletics

If you want to sprint 100 metres, run a 5k or train for a marathon, our outdoor and indoor tracks can prep you for a race, or simply use it to improve your technique or stamina.

Our staff can offer you advice on training, either in the gym or on the track, and if you want to take this sport to competition level then we have associations with athletic clubs.
