LANCASTER MENNONITE HIGH SCHOOL RUNNING TRACK
Location: Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Area: 53,000 sq/ft
Installation: Abacus Sports Installations Ltd.
Student athletes at a Pennsylvania High School are following in the footsteps of Olympian Usain Bolt. Bolt has broken world-records, and personally trains on running tracks from Regupol America. Now student athletes at Lancaster Mennonite High School (LMHS) can experience the same high-performance surface.
Athletic Director Mike Yoder updated the school’s running track in 2009, when he first installed Regupol® SB in Dash Black. After great experiences on their first Regupol track, Yoder spearheaded the upgrade to Regupol® AG in Relay Red.
“One of the primary reasons for choosing Regupol for both installations is their well respected reputation for high caliber tracks,” Yoder said. “Not only were we proud to support a local company, but we are confident in the investment knowing Regupol tracks have outstanding quality and a long lifespan.” A total of 53,000 square feet of Regupol AG was installed at LMHS in August 2012, and continues to receive positive reviews from students and staff.
“The students are pleased with the improved feel of the new track, and we are thrilled to provide a safer surface due to the cushion and uniformity of Regupol tracks,” said Yoder.
Regupol AG is made from precision engineered, pre-manufactured recycled SBR rubber granules and a polyurethane binder base mat, adhered to the asphalt base layer. As the inventor of the category, Regupol holds years of performance and manufactures products that provide serious comfort and durability. Regupol tracks can take wear and still perform like the day they were installed. With over 1,000 track installations worldwide, Regupol is pleased that a neighboring school district is now home to one of their running tracks.
