Street Athletics

We're in Albert Square where there is a temporary 60 metre long running track for today's Street Athletics national finals. This competition is for young athletes, with preliminary races having been held across the country for boys, girls and teenagers in five age groups (under 11, under 13, under 15, under 17 and under 20).

Street Athletics is headed up by Manchester's Olympic silver medallist Darren Campbell. He offered advice and support to participants at the Manchester heats in Whalley Range's Alexandra Park as part of the Caribbean Carnival last month.


  1. Good morning from sunny Italy, thankyou for finding my blog recently and deciding to become a follower, delighted to have you aboard.
    I will be following you back with interest as our daughter lived in Manchester for a few years in her twenties and it was only then we realised what a pleaseant place it is.

  2. A great post and a wonderful picture. Great work
