Norman Park Athletics Track is now an approved – Elite athlete training facility.

British Athletics control the Elite athlete program in the UK. Please read this link for all the information:

UK ATHLETICS STATEMENT ON ATHLETES PROVIDED EXEMPTIONS TO CONTINUE TRAINING

 

Every “Elite” athlete has to meet rigorous standards before they are allowed to train and they must only train at a recognised approved facility. Norman Park Athletics Track has met the criteria and so an “eligible” athlete is allowed to train at the track. Hopefully the above link will make things clear but PLEASE be aware that athletes cannot simply arrive at the track. An email needs to be sent to normanpark@btconnect.com explaining why you believe you are an eligible elite athlete, the track then seeks approval from British Athletics, once confirmed by them an appointment can be offered for a training session.
