Mary Peters Track – Belfast, Northern Ireland

Mary Peters TrackThe United Kingdom is last on the European list, but I have already posted several tracks in England, so to finish this series up, I’m going the post tracks in the other three countries of the U.K.  So starting with Northern Ireland, and Mary Peters Track.  This track first opened in 1975 and is the home of Athletics Northern Ireland.  The track surface is brand new this year, and they hosted the first international meet here in June.  Flotrack and some race videos than can be seen HERE.  The track is named in honor of Mary Peters, the Olympic gold medalist in the pentathlon in the 1972 Games.
