Track Fees to Increase to £3 Per Session for Non-Club Members from 1st September 2016

In September 2015 City Academy started charging the club for the electricity to run the floodlights at Whitehall Athletic Arena in addition to the Annual Track Hire Fee which the club pays. In the winter of 2015/2016 this cost the club an additional £3,848.80. To cover this additional expenditure the club is clamping down to ensure that all club members pay the full £2 for every track session they undertake at Whitehall and that all season ticket holders have paid £50 in the current period (1st March to 31st August 2016) for a track season ticket.

The club is also announcing that as from Thursday 1st September 2016 all non-club members who use the track will be required to pay £3 as the track session fee.

A note to this effect has been posted on the equipment shed at Whitehall.
