In this section of the site we will see the processes involved in this transformation. The first image shows the field on 7th July just over a month before the games when none of the preparations have started.
We think weve found one!
Yes we have.
Once the sprint and distance track have been found and marked by flags both are cut again before the outer ring of posts are put in by the traditional hole pinch and big hammer.
Due to other commitments in the week prior to the games it was not possible to get photo’s of the continuing work of preparing the tracks using a ride-on mower and vibrating roller to take out the bumps and dips.These processes were followed by the marking on Thursday and finally on the Saturday morning tents, boundary ropes and all signage, then in the afternoon the event itself.
