The club is proud to announce that former European 5000m champion and current chief executive officer at British Athletics Jack Buckner will formally open Bury’s newly refurbished track and field facilities on Wednesday 26th April 2023. The opening ceremony, that will also involve key project funding providers from Bury Council, Veolia and Suez will be followed by an open meeting to showcase the new facilities.
The club will be hosting hammer, long jump and high jump events together with a series of open mile races. A great way to celebrate over £500,000 of investment at the Market Street track over the past 18 months. The new facility has been awarded the prestigious ‘TrackMark’ accreditation which will allow Bury to host league and open competitions.
The opening ceremony will be at 6.50pm and will be preceded by a performance from Bury’s Fire Choir.
