Opened by 400 metre World Champion and double Olympic medallist Christine Ohuruogu, and publicised as the 'world's first ever compact athletics facility' by British Athletics, Blakedown were very proud to have completed the works at Stoke Newington School in partership with Sport England.
The design included a blue and black coloured, eight lane sprint track and three lane long jump with sand pit, plus seating area, three shot put circles and landing zones, and 250 and 500 metre running trails around the school.
UKA has been happy to lend its support to such a worthwhile iniative, helping to ensure that the Christine Ohuruogu's of tomorrow are uncovered and nurtured at high quality facilities like this one.
