Running Track Installation Resources

A crew works to resurface a running track

At American Athletic Track and Turf, we know that a running track is only as good as its substructure. We leverage a depth of scientific knowledge to increase running track longevity, performance, safety, value, and even aesthetics. While our first concern is the track owner, we also keep athletes in mind to ensure a strong performance from everyone who steps out onto the track. Located in Southampton Township, NJ, and Haines City, FL, our service areas include Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern Massachusetts, Delaware, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Florida. We’ve built a strong reputation for quality work.

Whitepapers and Resources

How do you get started on the road to a running track? What will you need to know? Begin with these whitepapers and other reliable sources:

To properly assess your facility’s condition, use this Facility Information Guide to understand the extent of repairs needed. The guide also helps you plan a budget and have accurate expectations for the results of the upgrade.

Florida Warranties

We offer a special Florida Running Track Platinum Warranty, lasting for either 10 or 15 years. It is the industry’s first and only total protection plan for new running track construction.

Porous running tracks allow liquids to move through them, while nonporous tracks are sealed, so liquid and air cannot infiltrate. Learn why sealed running tracks can give your facility an advantage.
