Whether your facility hosts world-class athletes or just students and local community runners, the Running Track Resurfacing is one of the most critical pieces of any sports field. Choosing the right surface and resurfacing it on a regular basis helps ensure that everyone can test their skills and get in shape on a safe and resilient surface.
If the problem is limited to a few small areas, your in-house maintenance staff can use running track repair kits that contain rubber granules and polyurethane adhesive. This can save you the cost of a full-on repair crew and keep your truck running for years to come.
However, if the entire surface is showing signs of serious wear it may be time to consider a complete track reconstruction. This will involve the construction crew removing the old surface down to the first intact layer before paving a new rubber or asphalt layer on top of it. The crew will also take this opportunity to inspect and repair any drainage problems.
The Science Behind Running Track Resurfacing: What You Need to Know
It is important to have a fully functioning track drain system. Otherwise, standing water can occur which reduces the life expectancy of the surface and poses a slip risk for athletes. Our crews regularly service track drains by opening them, removing any organic debris, and pressure washing to allow water to flow freely.
The team at Mid-America Sports Construction has extensive experience designing, excavating, building, and resurfacing indoor and outdoor running tracks so that your athletes can hone their skills on an attractive and durable weather-faring surface.
