A Brief History of Our Guide
The inaugural edition of this directory saw the light of day on Facebook on January 21, 2011. Since then, it transitioned through various platforms like pinoymiler and pinoyathletics.com, before finding its home on pinoyathletics.info. Thanks to our dedicated community and local contacts, we’ve expanded our list over the years. If you notice any omissions or errors, kindly reach out to [email protected].
Know Before You Go! Track surfaces in the Philippines primarily feature Tartan rubber, a popular choice since the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games. While we do our best to provide accurate information, please consult with the respective track ovals’ administrators before making plans, as schedules and conditions might change. Kindly note, that some older listings, like those on Pinoymiler.com, may now be outdated.
