FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State track & field program has finished the process of resurfacing the Rams' indoor track at the South College Gym.
Patch work was completed in worn areas and three layers of rubber have gone down with a spray coat to add stability with each layer. The final layer of rubber granules are a finer material used to fill in space within the larger material which helps finish off the surface. Lane lines and finish lines are both in place on the track.
"The staff and athletes are very excited about the new surface," commented Head Coach Brian Bedard. "It will provide the team with a softer and more durable surface to train on. It will also help in the recruiting process when we bring prospects and families through the facility they can see a quality indoor track with a new surface."
The track was last resurfaced in 1997 after the "Spring Creek Flood" when a two-day period of record rainfall flooded much of Fort Collins and the CSU campus.
