Sprint track

Peffermill provides a 100 metre, nine-lane floodlit synthetic porous polymeric training track. Located between the two Astroturf pitches and protected by perimeter fencing, the training track area is available to users of the Astroturf pitches for warm-up and cool down purposes.

It can also be booked for discreet running based conditioning sessions and fitness testing on an individual or group basis. Access to the training track is offered to all Astroturf users for a 15-minute period before and after pitch booking.

Any person or group wishing to reserve the training track for a particular running-based session or fitness test can do so.
