The indoor season continues in the United States

Mondo tracks are the protagonists of the NCAA Championships in Athletics

 From Rhode Island to Alabama, eight upcoming indoor track and field championships, including six for NCAA Division I regional conferences, will take place on Mondo track surfaces. 

“Mondo’s tracks let athletes perform their best, so it’s no wonder that facilities with our world-class surfaces are chosen to host so many track and field championships,” said Michael Tovar, director, track & field, North America, Central America and Caribbean (NACAC) for Mondo.

It is of course Super X Performance surface the American East Conference (Div. 1) at the New Balance Track & Field Center (168th Street Armory Youth Center, New York City), the Capital Athletic Conference at the Freeman Center of Christopher Newport University (Newport News, Virginia), the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (Div 1) the New Balance Track & Field Center (168th Street Armory Youth Center, New York), the Northeast Conference (Div. 1) at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex (Landover, Maryland), the Patriot League (Div. 1) at the Wesley A. Brown Fieldhouse of the US Naval Academy (Annapolis, Maryland).

Three other events were held on tracks with Mondotrack surface: the Atlantic 10 Conference (Div. 1) to Mackal Fieldhouse at the University of Rhode Island (Kingston), the Conference Carolinas to JDL Fast Track (Winston-Salem, North Carolina) The Sun Belt Conference (Div. 1) to CrossPlex Birmingham (Alabama).

The Wesley A. Brown Fieldhouse and the Birmingham CrossPlex feature Mondo hydraulic banked tracks.  Two curved sections are banked for high-speed running events, allowing athletes to safely maximize their speed and performance on the curves instead of decelerating, which they must do on flat surfaces.  A hydraulic system raises and lowers the curved sections, and when lowered, the track is flush with the surrounding surfaces for other sports or activity use.
