CAMBRIDGE & COLERIDGE ATHLETIC CLUB
University Track, Wilberforce Rd, Cambridge, CB3 0EQ.
The track is reached from north and south by turning off the M11 at junction 12 and heading toward Cambridge city centre. When you enter the 30 mph speed limit continue for a further half mile to a set of pedestrian traffic lights (care- new speed camera about 400m inside the 30 limit). Turn left into Grange road immediately after the lights. Follow Grange road for about ¾ mile, (watch out it has a 20mph speed limit and various traffic annoying measures), passing Robinson college on your left, and turn into Adams Rd on the left at the traffic lights. Follow Adams Rd for about 400m until you reach a sharp right turn. The track entrance is to the left on this corner, which is the junction of Adams and Wilberforce Roads.
From Bedford direction follow the signs to Cambridge from the A428 onto the A1303 and you will cross the M11 at Junction 13. Take care to turn off the A428 near Hardwick onto the A1303, or you will join the A14 Cambridge bypass which has no exit to M11 south.
The track is an 8 lane synthetic with 10 lane straight, and good field facilities. We have a selection of refreshments available (Hot & cold drinks and a variety of snacks), and there is limited cover under the balcony in bad weather, but please remind your athletes to bring waterproof warm clothing if the weather forecast is bad.
Looking forward to a great day!
