Best Jogging Tracks
Bonded rubber is an excellent surface for use on jogging and walking tracks. Such jogging surfaces are water permeable so that water does not puddle on the playground surface. Rubberized jogging tracks resist “spike” running shoes and are easy to maintain and resurface when it becomes necessary. Bonded rubber systems are poured in place and troweled, and consist of a rubber base covered with a sprayed structural coating. The surface bonds to concrete and asphalt, making upgrading of these bonded rubber surfaces simple.
Bonded rubber jogging tracks are very similar to bonded rubber playground surfaces, which are chosen because of their safety profile of rubber surfacing. When used under playground equipment, rubber surfaces are excellent at protecting kids from falls. On tracks, these playground rubber surfaces are slip resistant, seamless, and durable. Rubber jogging track surfaces are available in several colors to complement any color scheme, including nature’s own greens and browns.

Runners love rubberized tracks, and many professional and collegiate level tracks are made with rubberized surfaces. Running on hard surfaces like asphalt and concrete can induce shin splints, a painful condition that can seriously hamper a runner’s training regimen. Rubberized tracks are much less likely to cause shin splints than other running surfaces because they adequately absorb shock, reducing stresses on the bones and muscles in the lower leg.
Community recreation facilities that provide jogging tracks are highly desirable community features. Recreational joggers use tracks for many reasons, including as a social setting for groups of two or three who walk or jog together. Whether a jogging track is a simple indoor oval or a complex outdoor greenway trail, its surface will influence usability and popularity. Bonded rubber jogging tracks are highly desirable due to their comfort, weather resistance, appearance, and durability.
