About the Athletics Track

Macclesfield Leisure Centre has an excellent, modern, competition standard Athletics track. Designed to the latest specifications, it features an all-weather, eight lane, 400 metre running track, national standard hammer/discus cage and double runways for the pole vault and long/triple jump. Anchor points are situated on the throwing circles to accommodate disabled athletic events.

Alongside the track, there is a modern pavilion with excellent public address facilities, toilets (including 1 disabled toilet), baby changing area, first aid and officials room. The track and field are fully floodlit for evening sessions. Surrounding the track facility there is a 750 metre perimeter trail ideal for warm up and cool down sessions.

There is also extensive car parking (including 5 disabled places) available for those big events.
