Track investment really paid off
city’s athletics track is 50 years old and is about to get an upgrade. The roll of honour of top athletes who have trained or competed on the track is impressive.
Even more impressive is the tens of thousands of people who have used the facility to train, run or even just rehabilitate.
It shows just how valuable an investment in sports and leisure can be to the city and its population.
The investment 50 years ago has paid off magnificently and it is why the £500,000 investment in the running surface will also be money well spent.
