¿It will be run by Gloucester Athletics Track Management Ltd and will enable a range of club and county fixtures to take place.

Richard Blackwell, a director of the charity, said: "This is a huge honour, not just for the new track but for the sport in the city. 

"It is a great privilege to be afforded a royal visit and we are extremely grateful to the many people who have made this event possible."
