Outdoor Activities

Brecon Leisure Centre has some of the finest outdoor facilities in Powys. The main areas our our Grade A 8 lane 400m athletics Track and our full size Astro Pitch.

athletics track

If you are a Welsh athlete then you will have probably raced at Brecon at some stage. Our Grade A 8 lane 400 metre track provides a first class surface for elite performers.

To compliment the track we have all the facilities for field disciplines. Whether you are a thrower or a jumper Brecon is the ideal training venue with hammer cages, discus circles and high jump and long jump pits.

Brecon Athletics Club

We are also proud to be the home venue of the very successful Brecon AC. 

The club caters for all ages and abilities, with groups for Track and Field, Cross Country and Road Running events.

Training takes place at the track in the outdoor season (March to September), and in our sports facilities at the centre and high school in the indoor/Cross Country season (September to March). It starts at 6pm for U13 and over, and 6:30pm for U11.


Training fees are £2 per session, the first three sessions are free. Membership fees apply for athletes who wish to continue training and competing for the club.

The track is available for public use throughout the year outside of club training sessions. Customers are asked to visit main reception first to pay for their session.

astro turf pitch

Again our Astro turf is one of the best in the region. It is full size so can be used for football or hockey. The pitch can also be divided to give outdoor 5 or 7 a-side football pitches.

The pitch has the necessary floodlights so can be used all year round during centre opening hours.

hard courts

As well as our Asto Pitch we have other outdoor sports areas including our hard court tarmac courts.

These are ideal for either tennis or netball.
