Star Track Athletics Festival

Our Falkirk British Star Track Festivals provide exciting opportunities for children aged 5 - 8 and 9 - 14 to take part in athletics and learn the basic FUNdamentals and to develop and hone these skills through various games and events. We run a Star Track Festival every Easter, Summer and Winter.

The Star Track Children's Athletics Festivals run during the school holidays. Application forms are available from Grangemouth Stadium.
