You may think there isn’t much that goes into the design of a running track. However, field managers and athletic directors can benefit from partnering with an athletic field construction company specializing in running track design. American Athletic Track and Turf, proud partners of Tarkett Sports Companies, Beynon Sports, and FieldTurf, puts the power of track and field design in your hands with a resourceful online design tool. With only a few clicks, you can create the perfect running track design for your school or athletic facility. Here, we discuss the ins and outs of the design tool and how to make your vision come to life.

How Our Running Track Design Tool Works

Creating your ideal running track or sports field has never been easier thanks to our online track builder. Users can select from the wide range of track and artificial turf field color options available from American Athletic when designing a running track. The design tool accounts for both six-lane and eight-lane running tracks with single or dual chutes. Users can also incorporate a football, soccer, lacrosse (men and women), or field hockey field into their design. Every part of the running track is customizable for users to create a one-of-a-kind playing surface for their athletes. Users have the power to select their preferred colors for the track surface, the included field, and track exchange zones, as well as the right and left D-zones. For even more customization, users can upload their team logo to see how that would look with the chosen colors. That provides a complete rendition of what your athletic facility could look like after our American Sports Builders Association (ASBA) certified track and field builders bring your vision to life. Our online design tool is also great for designing tennis courts.

What’s Next?

Once you create your ideal running track using our online design tool, it’s time for American Athletic to get to work. Coming to us with a design already picked out allows us to streamline our process and begin building your upgraded sports facility. Construction begins by preparing the base with earthwork and stonework as needed. A drainage system is then installed per client specifications. Drainage options include standard storm drainage or channel drains, slot drains, flat drains, and other specialty options. From there, we install a synthetic track surface matching the client’s initial design. To make your build complete, American Athletic can also add the following:
  • Field event facilities, including high jump, pole vault, long jump, discus, shot-put, steeplechase, and javelin
  • Installation of sports equipment
  • Fences, bleachers, retaining walls, lighting, and other site enhancements
  • Irrigation
  • Landscaping
To help keep your newly upgraded running track looking and performing as expected, we also offer repair and maintenance services.
