The Cebu City Sports Center recently got a new rubberized track.
After 18 years, the premier sporting venue of Cebu got a new track to replace the original, at a cost of P33 million including the repair and refurbishing of other parts of the facility.
The sports center was built in 1994 when Cebu hosted the Palarong Pambansa, the national championships for school sports.
The place has hosted many other national competitions including the Private School Athletic Association (PRISAA) National Meet and the Philippine National Games.
Among all the sports facilities around the country, the CCSC has been regarded as the busiest with hundreds of joggers, walkers, dancers, and fitness enthusiasts trooping there every year.
Now that there is a new rubberized track, the tough job of maintaining it will be foremost among the duties of those running the affairs of the sports center.
Users of the facility are asked to strictly follow the rules to ensure that the rubber would last long.
Cleanliness has been an issue at the sports center with many users refusing to dispose of their trash properly.
Many of the users are hoping that the others would also toe the line so as to ensure that the CCSC would really become a center for health and fitness and not one for filth and rudeness.
