Construction Update

Please note: Construction work has now started on the new Hockey Pitch development. This construction work will see 2 new Hockey Pitches due to be completed by September 2018. Although as much effort as possible will be taken to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum, there will of course be a level that is unavoidable. We will also be looking to refurbish the changing facilities at a later date. Please check back on this page for further updates when available.

26/02/2018 - Jogging Trail around WRSG closed until further notice.

01/06/2018 - Hockey Pitch Closed until September 2018

27/06/2018 - The foundations are down and the work is coming on nicely!



The floodlit 8-lane synthetic track (10 lane x 100m) is equipped to cope with competition from junior to elite level. Wilberforce Road track is the training and competitive base for both the University Athletics Club and the Cambridge and Coleridge Athletics Club, for residents of the city. The track welcomes bookings from University, school, club and private groups. Individuals may also use the facility by joining our Cambridge Sport Membership or a Track User Card.
