Harvard Banks on Beynon
Harvard’s iconic Crimson is shining bright once again at the Albert H. Gordon Track. The facility was recently resurfaced after water damage affected the previous surface. Considered one of the best facilities in the region, the Gordon Indoor Track is the host of numerous meets each season, and in recent years has been the site of both the Heptagonal Championships as well as the ECAC and IC4A Championships. Officials opted for Beynon Sports to lead to renovation of the banked 200m indoor track.
Built with Beynon Sports’ revolutionary BSS 2000 surfacing system, the new Gordon Indoor Track surface was finished with a specialized Hobart encapsulated texture – providing an unparalleled venue for speed. Not only do we strive to make athletes fast, but we help keep them safe. Beynon’s specialized, high performance synthetic athletic surfaces are designed for speed, competition, and most importantly, daily training.
“The track itself, designed on the principles of biomechanics, is unusually fit for both training and competition. The springy tuned surface has not only reduced injury, but has accounted for many world-class performances.” – GoCrimson.com
Since their introduction in 1980, banked indoor track venues have grown exponentially across the world. Their innovative design counterbalances the centrifugal force on the athletes running along the bend evenly, regardless of the lane. Along with Harvard University, Beynon has installed banked tracks at Boston University, the University of Iowa, Liberty University and the University of Michigan.
Each of Beynon’s indoor sports flooring systems are seamless, self-leveling, and have achieved GreenGuard Gold™ certification, ensuring superior indoor air quality for schools, healthcare and athletic facilities.
Two organizations with long traditions of excellence, Harvard University and Beynon Sports, have finally come together to create a masterpiece.
