Warm weather prompts opening of TCC outdoor track

Kamloops, B.C. - Due to warmer than normal temperatures this January, the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department has temporarily reopened the outdoor track and turf at the Tournament Capital Centre for public use and group bookings. Over the next two weeks, the weather conditions will be evaluated daily to determine if the outdoor facility is fit for use. With the approval of City staff, the track will tentatively be open for use from 5:30 am to 11:00 pm Monday through Friday and 6:30 am to 9:30 pm on weekends.
