Other Info:
This was the original Robin Park track which opened in 1985 and had a Resisport surface. It was built by ERDF Construction Ltd. and funded by by the Greater Manchester Sports Council. There was a large stand with a seating capacity of 1000 which was designed by the architects Atherden Fuller and there was an indoor straight next to it. The track was demolished in 1997 and a new one built 200m away following a 6.2M lottery award. Details on the new track can be found here. The site of the old track is now occupied by a GCU cinema.
