About this Project

“New York City’s Team,” the St. John’s University Red Storm, installed a Regupol AG™ track surface after 20 years of training on a mediocre outdoor track surface.

The nationally lauded Big East program sought out a new track that could withstand the weather in the New York metro area and be constructed using the best techniques and materials. The new track is expected to perform for a minimum of 20 years. Regupol America impressed St. John’s with their experience installing track surfaces globally. Regupol tracks are in a number of world class venues, and have been installed in various climates. Because of this, the St. John’s coaching and facilities teams chose to move ahead with a Regupol AG™ track.

“The Regupol AG™ track provides what our athletes need – a softer surface, offering a nice bounce to their run, as well as a surface that we expect will last a very long time,” said John Hurt, head of track and field at St. John’s and coach of the women’s track and field team for over 30 years. “This track is a demonstrable statement of our commitment to our student-athletes.”

The Red Storm women’s track & field team had five athletes qualify for the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, OR, and placed fourth at the 2014 Big East Indoor Championship in New York City. In the last twenty years, athletes from the St. John’s women’s track & field team have competed on the biggest stages in the world, including the U.S. Championships, U.S. Olympic Trials, Pan American Games, World Championships, and Olympic Games. Since 1991, the team has had 12 individuals compete at the U.S. National Championships. Their Regupol track is a critical asset to coaching staff and athletes, assisting in delivering more wins and breaking more records.

St. John’s University has a 107-year old tradition of athletic excellence with a majority of their success in National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) Division I for sports such as basketball, soccer, and track & field.
