Important information from the hosting club: Braintree & District Athletics Club very much look forward to welcoming you and your Teams to the EYAL fixture at Braintree on Sunday 8th July.

There is plenty of parking and we would ask any coaches to park at the very far end of the car park please. There is no stand at the track so please advise your athletes and spectators to plan accordingly should the weather be poor on the day, although I hope the fine weather of late will continue. Toilet facilities are available in the main building. There is no cafe at the Leisure Centre, but light refreshments will be available at the Track.
