ATHLETIC INDOOR TRACKS
But, the principles are very similar.
Very often cycling and indoor athletics are combined, in order to make bigger use of the stadium. It is therefore one of our daily design tasks to connect the two kind of sports in one installation.
Indoor athletic tracks are preferably 200 m long, but may also have smaller sizes. They are built as a fixed installation, demountable or even as a mechanical, movable construction. They should have at least four lanes, but six lanes become more and more common.
The International Federation has proposed
a kind of standard track, but very often this "standard" does not fit to
the exsisting location, or to the additionally desired infield use or,
or, or ....
Therefore it still remains the task of an experienced designer to adapt the running track design to the location in question. The international regulations leave room for this.
Since 1971 our office has designed so far
more than a dozen running tracks, mainly in Central Europe. The preferred
construction is a wooden sub-structure with a wooden running surface.
Most of the tracks have been covered with a synthetic MONDOâ-running surface.
