Other Info:
The "Rub-Kor" track was opened on 30 May 1971. This surface is coloured black and is a mix of rubber and a kind of bitumen and on first glance looks like tarmac. Athletes were totally forbidden from using any spikes longer than 5mm on it. Although the track is near Bellahouston Sports Centre it is not associated with them and is just part of the park. It is now in a pretty bad state of repair. The surface has been chewed up and definitely won't take a spike. The lane markings are faded but at least six distinct lanes are visible all the way round with no extra lanes in the straight. Apparently the surface was damaged when the Sports Centre swimming pool was constructed. The earth they dug out was dumped in the centre of the track which is now a large grassy knoll although it was a redgra pitch.
