Top marks for athletics track at Harvey Hadden

Athletcis Track

The athletics track at Harvey Hadden stadium has achieved a category A classification for the first time following a track and field inspection by UK Athletics.

The highest grade has been achieved thanks to the additional eighth lane and infield improvements like relocation of long and triple jump pits, upgraded pole vault facility, shot putt and discus area. The existing track has also been cleaned and re-lined.

The news means the stadium can now accommodate competitions at all levels; from international to grass roots events.

The Amateur Swimming Association has also certified that the 25m short course and 50m pools have met the required length criteria for world records to be broken. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) have given their approval that the track and pools meet the requirements for the Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Associations World Games Competition the biggest test event ahead of the official opening.
