Aathaworld is your preferred sport flooring provider who can propose, supply and install for your properties from school, mixed development, sport center to both commercial and non-commercial properties. A synthetic running track is able to withstand all range of outdoor weather with rubberized artificial surface in which field athletics or other users can run on it comfortably. Consistent surface is built to provide an unobstructable running track for athletes to perform their ability at the maximum level of potential, even if the weather conditions might be adverse. As a synthetic running track contractor in Malaysia, we are able to do a study on the current floor condition before proposing a sustainable floor finish to your projects. From the past decades, a wide range of materials are used in the field such as crushed cinders, sand, grass and multiple forms of dirt. However, according to observation, these formats of running track are still in existence at many places. There are several ways of measuring for running tracks, such as the lane, total length, radius, semi-circle length, Delta and Angle. Lane, is actually the ordinal number of the lane whereas inside will be the first lane. The next one in accordance with the synthetic running track contractor Malaysia, will be the length of lane in total which normally use meters as the unit of measurement. Curve’s radius is where 0.30m distance to the lane calculated from the inner side of the track and semi-circle length is where the track’s half circle at that radius. Delta is where the radius’s length of the track is much longer than the track inside, while lead-in requirement to be a fair race. The corresponding staggering angle is actually started from the offset, to ensure all the racers of all lanes can run with the same distance on the curve. Synthetic running track contractor in Malaysia has to ensure every aspect of the measurements needed to be in line to have a professionally built athletics sport flooring.

 

Actually, the length of proper running track that is suitable for competition, first lane has to be 400m (approximately one-thousand-three-hundred-twelve-and-point-three feets). However, there were tracks built using imperial distances such as 440 yards before the changes in rule in the year 1979, many of running tracks were still using the unit of measurement in yards. International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has formed up the track lane in a worldwide standard (in which most of the countries globally agreed on), this is the width set up to 1.22 meters. Above formula calculates the distance track distance surrounding in 4rd lane is 423 meters, 3rd lane is 415.33 meters, 2nd lane is 407.67 meters while lane 5 to lane 8 are 430.66m, 433.38m, 446m and 453.66m respectively.  According to synthetic running track contractor Malaysia, IAAF is a distinctly sport governing body that is recognized by global and it specifies all ranges of sport’s regulation for the Global Championship or standard, at least for international level track. There are many reasons why athletes should always put themselves able to run on the proper international running track, as well as sufficient training before the real competition game on board; as other running surfaces might have their pros and cons.

Grass is a very common sport field for athletes, from football to sportsmen who want to train their stamina to speed. It is a generous surface in which it is very kind to runner bones, joints and muscles since impact level to the foot is lesser. Synthetic running track contractor in Malaysia does advise those athletes who have past injuries that prones to return, or had injuries but yet they still want to train up their running ability. Grass that has been maintained nicely on cricket pitches and sport play fields are good for athletes to practise their running since the floor is well-leveled as well as less rutted. The drawbacks of grass track are many too, one is that during rainy days or winter time, it tends to be slippery and muddy, making users have a challenge to run. The risk of getting injury is high on those terrains due to the sliding and slipping, making run on top of grass no longer a wise choice for countries that have winter seasons as well as tropical nations that always have long periods of rainy days. Even though spiked shoes are another option for such circumstances happening to the grass field, it can only remain for workouts that are short enough in accordance with experienced sharings by synthetic running track contractor Malaysia. 

Another option will be the trail running, it is wonderful to run around the countryside where runners can enjoy beautiful scenery. Softer and less forgiving than the tarmac, either compact dirt or gravel will make our body absorb a reduced level of impact. Trail running makes athletes stronger as the stabilized key parts of runner such as through feet, hips and ankles are required when they run on top of the trails. The disadvantages of running on top of those trails are that, rocks, tree roots, sharp descent will make runners feel difficult technically; Synthetic running track contractor in Malaysia claims that these natural rhythm breakers or uneven terrain might cause slippery during wet or hazardous to athletes. There are also risks coming from other users on these trails who share the routes with athletes. For instance, dog walkers’ pets will sometimes uncontrollable and hurt the runners while cyclists might pass through runners silently but yet at a very fast speed. Road is another surface where athletes use it as a training ground commonly seen by many road users. It is a firm solid surface that is suitable for fast running without very much consideration of the post-impact caused by the weather interruption, based on statistics raised by synthetic running track contractor Malaysia. Many runners are advised to use their legs onto running this kind of hard surfaces so impact absorption can be conditioned as well as trained. However, overly running on these kinds of road surfaces are not really beneficial because asphalt or tar road is still a tough surface that is unforgiving, transmission of impact forces through lower legs and feet are enhanced, causing shins and calves sore quicker when we run at super high speed. 

Additionally, sand is another training surface that athletes can jog on in which runners can build strength since hardship needs to go through for every stabilization step needed to make for landing. According to synthetic running track contractor in Malaysia, pushing off and absorbing the impact are huge, subsequently making the foot's intrinsic muscles of athletes will be strengthened. Tendons, ligaments and muscles will be having a lot of stress since beaches will have uneven surface as well as its natural camber, since pulling out the foot from the sand and so will make the whole body in stressed condition. Last but the most important one, would be getting training ground onto the proper running track built for sport. It is optimal and most accurate measurable progress that is on-par with the actual competition, flatness and smoothness surface of the built-up making it exclusively an advantage for speedwork. However, it is highly advisable that athletes warm up and cool down before as well as after the track running.
