Other Info:
The track was built in about 1960 and was initially known as the Whitecrook Running Track. At the time it was considered to be a state of the art cinder track with first class field facilities and was used by Clydesdale Harriers. In the late 1970s the name changed to the Whitecrook Community Education Centre Track following a change of name of the adjacent centre. However, in 1993, the local council decided that the cost of upkeep was too high and leased the whole playing field area to the Clydebank Rugby Club for 19 years for a peppercorn rent and Clydesdale Harriers stopped using it. The track became quite overgrown but in 2000 the track surface was cleared of weeds, levelled off and topped up with new red blaes and Clydesdale Harriers are using it again.
