During August this group is training away from Wilberforce Road track due to space restrictions. This is being reviewed in September

Track and Field training during C&C booked sessions

During the period of the Covid-19 restrictions, everyone will need to request a place at training sessions being held at Wilberforce Road track.

This is necessary while we are restricted to 6 people per group and we are restricted as to how many groups can use the site at any one time.

You can book a session by going to the track booking page – Here you can view the available sessions and request access. This should be by 24 hours before the session, ideally sooner. You must wait to receive a confirmation email before turning up at the track though.

Please note carefully the times and days and you must follow the C&C rules and have signed and returned a declaration form before training. If you have any queries that can’t be answered by your normal coach, please email trainingbookings@cambridgeandcoleridge.org.uk

If you do not have a training group for running at the track, please email trainingbookings@cambridgeandcoleridge.org.uk and we will do our best to group together similar requests and make a slot available either on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening. Please don’t just turn up as there may not be space.

Remember

Remember you will need to take your own water as there is no access to drinking water at the pavilion currently.

New sessions will be added, usually a week in advance or at least when a coach has requested (and there is space).

Track and Field training at other times

It is now possible for individuals to book training slots at the athletics track using the CamUniSport app on your phone or tablet but only if you have an account with the University’s sports service. Please contact the sports service: https://www.sport.cam.ac.uk/contact-us to get one.

You have three options:

  1. Buy full gym membership which includes Athletics track access
  2. Buy a track pass only at the C&C membership** price of £60/annum: https://www.sport.cam.ac.uk/facilities/athletics-track
  3. Pay as you go at £5 per 1 hour session

** Note: You may need to prove your C&C membership which you can do as explained here on the Other Info page, University Facilities tab.

Finally, note to Cambridge University AC and Hare and Hounds members:

At the current time of restricted availability of track time, the Cambridge University Athletics Club and we have a reciprocal arrangement allowing CUAC or Hare & Hounds athletes to request training at C&C’s sessions. If they wish to join a coached session please register interest as above; if as an independent, please email trainingbookings@cambridgeandcoleridge.org.uk – We need you sign the declaration before your first session please.

C&C senior athletes may also request to training at the CUAC session on Monday 4-6pm while it is not term time. Email trainingbookings@cambridgeandcoleridge.org.uk to request this.

In either case, acceptance will be dependent on availability.
