Indoor Track Resurface Project
A key part of the training regimen for both women’s and men’s track and field teams is the indoor track located on the upper level of the Hitchcock Arena within the Sollenberger Sports Center. The indoor track has never been replaced since it was first installed in 1985. Not only is the surface well-worn and age-compressed after 37 years of hard use, but it is also very damaging to the athletes’ bodies.
A planned new track surface will ensure fewer injuries among our runners and those who regularly walk the track. Because the adhesion of the current surface is secure, a new mondo layer will be installed over the existing surface, providing additional cushion.
