Cardiff AAC Track Update

Tuesday 14 August 2018

Club Chairman Bernie Plain, met Steve Borley last week, regarding situation in relaiding the new track, as rumours have been circulating. Bernie confirmed, the contractors will start this week, (they have). First they will take up the old track all weather surface, remove surface from D's, and run ups to the sand pits etc. Then repairs (if required) will be made the concrete surface. Next stage will be to insert the new track etc surfaces. Once that has been completed the track etc., will have to be lined for competitions to take place.

The plan is to have the refurbushment work finished ready for the Academy season starting on 10th September. Should that not happen, the DOME can be used by Academy, on training nights, and the grass field near entrance to stadium will be made available for training. The outside throwing area has not been affected, and has been used for training and competitions, as in previous post. The throwing area will have refurbishment work in replacing the old grass surface.

The new track will be BLUE like the one seen on TV in Berlin Euro Championships. The D's, and runways will be RED, with WHITE lines, thus matching club colours. As always, completion date of refurbushmen will be dictated by the weather, will keep updates on refurbushment progress.
