About Grangemouth Stadium

Location

A map of the venue

Grangemouth Stadium is a Certified UKA Grade 1 Athletics Stadium and is the perfect location for visiting Olympic and Paralympic teams to undertake their pre-Games athletics and weightlifting training programmes.

Located in Central Scotland, Grangemouth Stadium is well-served by transport links: the town is served directly by a main motorway; the nearest train station is less than three kilometres away, and both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are also only a short drive away. The Stadium also has ample car and coach parking to the front and rear.

The Stadium was the first all-weather track surface in the UK. It has established itself as one of the busiest athletics stadiums in Scotland and hosts many regional, national and international events.

In 1997, the Stadium added the UK's first purpose-built Indoor Athletics Academy. The Academy allows all year-round training indoors for Sprints, Pole Vault, High Jump, Long Jump, Triple Jump and Throws. The Academy also offers comprehensive strength training and conditioning.

The Indoor Athletics Academy was further extended in 2003, doubling its size to over 2100 square metres also adding office accommodation and increased changing areas.

The layout of the Indoor Academy enables athletes and coaches to work with weights, plyometrics, track and field and gymnastic equipment all within the same training area at the same time.

The Stadium is now widely regarded as the best indoor athletics training venue in Scotland.
