Kidlington Running & Athletic Club is based at Stratfield Brake Recreation Ground in Kidlington, Oxfordshire. This 20 acre sports facility, built by the local parishes and district council with a substantial grant from Sport England, was opened in late 1999. There are three rugby pitches and two cricket squares, with a further area for football and, in summer, space to mark out a 400 metre grass track.
An adjoining area of similar size is managed by the Woodland Trust; part has been planted with trees and part has been devoted to a wildlife preserve, with paths running through. Circuits of the rugby and cricket areas each give runs of around 1000 metres; the latter can be extended to 1500 metres using the adjoining paths. The Woodland Trust area extends south and west towards the Oxford-Birmingham canal. A new bridge, opened in 2006, across the canal has given us immediate access to the towpath and country running.
The pavilion has modern changing facilities and a substantial upstairs function room with bar and kitchen which provides 360 degree viewing of the entire grounds. The function room is available for private hire – bookings are made via Legacy Leisure (01865) 847496.
