2020 Season Public Running
Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic we will not be offering any public running.
How long this will last is beyond our control but if what is being advised by H.M. Government becomes fact it could be well into Summer before we can start for the year.
We will keep you informed of progress through this web site or our Facebook page and hope to see you all in the not too distant future.
Updates for members are on the members page
In spite of the restrictions of lockdown and social distancing we have been able to keep the grass tidy at our track. Today 20th May was the 4th time members have descended onto our grounds to do what is required to keep it presentable. If we waited until a degree of freedom was restored we would be faced with something that looked like the open downland or at least looking like something the council turned the local streets into last year.
It's a shame that the only ones to benefit are dogs on walkies or others exercising but you must agree, it does look very nice down there.

We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
