Thurrock Harriers Athletic Club is based at the Athletics Stadium, Springfield Rd, Blackshots, Grays, Essex RM162QT.
The Stadium is one of the most prominent venues in the district and one of the best known in the region. It has seen a significant amount of redevelopment over the past few years. The facility consists of a seven lane synthetic track and eight lanes in the final straight. It has four long and triple jump pits, two javelin run ups and two throws cages. There are two high jump areas with two sets of high jump beds.
(See diagram below). The stand contains 400 seats, changing facilities and toilets with a separate disabled toilet. The commentary box has a full working audio PA system.
The track is surrounded by grass, suitable for spectators, particularly large school parties.
The Club provides all athletic equipment from its own funds, alongside all repairs which are carried out mostly by our own members.
Any further developments are through grants and funds sought by our Grants sub-committee.
The Clubhouse provides an office and a large, first class refreshment area, with First aid and a Ipad AED fully automated defibrillator.
The Club is fortunate to have an unmade car park for approx ? cars.
The track sits alongside the Blackshots playing field which is used for cross country and other training.
The Track and club house are available for hire.
