Woodbourn Road was always a regular facility for us, until it was mothballed by the council. Following news of the planned closure of Don Valley Stadium, the council and Sheffield Hallam University have re-opened the stadium, which now features two separate throwing areas, an 8 lane track, a 10 lane straight and new floodlights.
The English Institute of Sport (EIS) boasts an 8 lane 60m and 10 lane 100m straight track as well as a 200m oval track with banked curves. There are pole vault, high jump, long jump throwing and hurdles facilities and an onsite fitness suite.
Sadly, we can no longer use the facilities at Don Valley Stadium, which was closed in September 2013 and is due for demolition. Don Valley Stadium was built in 1990 for the World Student Games held in 1991 and had IAAF approved international top facilities for track and field athletics. There were 8 full lanes and a 10 lane home straight track. In addition there was a 60 meter indoor straight track. High jump, pole vault, long jump, and throwing exercise facilities were also available for indoor use, beside the indoor track. In addition to the track and field facilities, there was a fully equipped fitness suite offering aerobic and anerobic equipment.
