Tenth Revision of Track Ovals in the Philippines
Article, original article, and revisions by Andrew Pirie (Pirie Enzo)
The First edition of this publication was published on Facebook on January 21, 2011.
Hence in 2012 it moved to pinoymiler, then pinoyathletics.com then pinoyathletics.info.
Attached is what is fast becoming a very comprehensive list of Track ovals in the Philippines. This link was the most read article on pinoymiler .
Also I have recently revised and updated this list again. Having been provided knowledge about other rubberized tracks in Philippines via my provincial contacts. As noted please feel free to contribute if I have left mention of any out. Please send all updated information to email@example.com
First of all the surfaces in the Philippines are made of Tartan rubber (description below). Ones made out of dirt such as the one at Quezon Province, and Baguio Grounds have been removed as well as ones of grass such as Davao. Also irregular ovals made of Tartan such as Quezon City Amoranto have been included for the time being. However it can be argued that Ultra possibly is 397m. Is also considered irregular. six lane tracks such as Green Hills and Marikina have also been included.
Opening Hours to the track serve as a rough guide and are likely to change due to scheduling. Pinoyathletics.info will not be liable for any false information.
Therefore we advise you contact or make an inquiry with the track ovals admin before making any decisions.
Also please note that Pinoymiler.com edition I worked on a long time ago is now very out of date.
