Other Info:
The track was originally a fully redgra "cinder" 8 lanes all round one but half of the track was converted into synthetic sometime between 2011 and 2013 by Smith Polymeric so that now the home straight and top bend are synthetic allowing for 200m to be on the all weather surface with the rest of the lap on the redgra. Only 6 lanes of synthetic were laid on the bend. A synthetic HJ area was also provided. A synthetic JT runway was added later between 2014 and 2018. The track is managed by the members of Daventry AAC who are part of the Daventry & District Sports Club. It is still regularly used for training and a young athletes open meeting was held every year. The SC water jump barrier has been removed and the pit filled in. The shot and discus circles were laid in the late 1990s. The infield is a rugby pitch used by Daventry RFC. This article from early in 2020 indicates there are plans to complete the upgraded to a fully synthetic track and to install floodlights.
