Allianz Park to welcome Barnet youngsters
With the rugby season now over, Allianz Park is now in full athletics mode with the demountable seating removed and plans underway for the 40 school sports days that will take place in the coming weeks.
The first sports day takes place on Thursday (tomorrow) and thousands of Barnet youngsters will have showcased their athletics skills before the end of June with all schools in the borough using the first-class facility free of charge.
Of course, Allianz Park is also home to Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers, the current British League Champions, and the Barnet and District Athletics Club, who have many junior and senior events over the summer including a British Athletics League meet in August.
Now with 3,700 seats in athletics mode, Allianz Park is THE venue for community and elite athletics in the South East.
