New Armory Youth Center

This fall the athletics track will be renovated at the famous sports center in New York.

This fall, the New Balance Track & Field Center at the famous 168th Street Armory Youth Center is getting a new Mondo Super X Performance surface on its Mondo portable banked track.

A 60,000 square-foot arena with an Olympic-caliber track, the New Balance Track & Field Center boasts of one of the world's fastest—and busiest—tracks with more than 125 track meets held yearly.
Located in the heart of bustling Washington Heights, the Armory has become a mecca for track and field athletes from around the world while serving the students from all five boroughs of New York City. More than 400,000 athletes of all ages participate and visit the facility each year.
Mondo tracks have been part of the Armory since the mid-1990s, and the Mondo 200-meter, portable banked track was installed a few years later. In addition to the Armory track, the Mondo Super X Performance surface covers the venue’s infield, a separate jogging track, floors outside of the track perimeter and the entire expanse of the National Track & Field Hall of Fame. The track resurfacing is scheduled to begin in September and be completed by October.
“Without Mondo we wouldn't be where we are”, said Norbert Sander, president of the Armory Foundation. “Mondo has played a very important role as a professional, understanding company in this achievement. We look forward to working with them again.”
