There are different types of running track surfaces, and we are often asked the question: which one is the best type of running track surface for our sports facility?
Here is three most important factors that keep in mind before making a decision:
- Who is going to use the running track?
- What is the level of competition?
- What is the budget?
The types of running track surface can effect players speed, technique, and physical health. While a comfortable surface can improve the running experience, a hard surface can wear down your body over time, particularly your joints. Thus, there are mainly two types of running tracks synthetic grass carpet. Not to mention dirt, concrete, and asphalt running tracks. You can always get help from an Integral specialist.
IAAF Certified Running Track Surfaces
Synthetic running tracks provide comfortable running with its shock absorber surface as well as safety for the player. Little maintenance is needed on the surface and the runners never have to worry about the mud and slipping due to its non slipper structure. Some of the synthetic running tracks are IAAF certified.
Grass carpet running tracks also provides comfort and safety running with its cushion structure except that when it rains the surface can be slippery.
