Perhaps someone in Ballarat would know but I have been reliably informed that the tartan track in that city is being resurfaced.
Was told it wasnt ideal time of the year to do it but it could be achieved at the end of the season without distrupting the athletics to much.
Pity when it came to resurfacing our only track in SA the same piece of logic couldnt be used instead of sending the athletes elsewhere.
Apparently the resurfacing is being paid for by the Ballarat Council and Vic Sports and Rec.
Got to hand it to you Vics ,not only keeping building the tartan tracks but also maintaining them as well.

Nearly 30 synthetic tracks in Victoria, we have 1 in SA at Santos!! 1 north & 1 south would be a great start to complement Santos.

Floater ,I was under the impression the track was getting relayed after the track season.
The article said it should have been finished by end of Feb.
I was alerted that it is still happening now.
Did they close the track for the Summer season as in SA or did they use it for most of this season , say up until Christmas.

Absolutely cannot wait to lay my spikes into this new track, so excited. Last training session i had there i hit a slight pothole entering the straight after some 150m drills. "NOT FUN" .

Good on Ballarat for spending the money to get this done.
