Performance & Safety
Unlike competing systems, Beynon products are resilient by formulation. The physical properties of our World Athletics Certified systems do not change as they are exposed to the elements. Competing systems can firm upon installation and have a tendency to become harder over time as plasticizers are released from the product due to UV exposure.
If speed and performance rank at the top of your list, Beynon Sports' full pour systems have long been recognized as one of the leading tracks surfaces in North America.
Beynon Sports understands that one track does not fit all. That’s why we are one of the only athletic surfacing company that offers customizable track & field and fieldhouse surfaces with our Performance Series - BSS 1000 & BSS 2000 systems.
Our Performance Series can be TUNED to the force reduction specifications that match your desired feel under foot. Customizing your track is the key to your athletes’ top performance and only Beynon Sports can achieve the force reduction range of the track and field surface to make it more forgiving for distance, or firmer for explosive events.
A few record breaking performances of note:
- Tyson Gay set a new American record on the Hayward track at the Olympic Trials during the weekend of June 27, 2008. Gay ran two memorable 100-meter times—first 9.77 seconds and then 9.68
- During the 2012 Olympic trials at the same Hayward track Ashton Eaton broke the world record for the Decathlon with an impressive score of 9039 points
- At the 2012 Canadian Olympic Trials Jessica Zelinka broke the Canadian Heptathlon record with a score of 6599.
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting a track & field surface is the safety of your athletes. Beynon Sports has focused on this core principle since it's inception. When compared to competing systems, Beynon surfaces offer improved force reduction, enhanced feel under foot, and resiliency without sacrificing performance.
The Beynon track is easier on the athletes. I spoke with several coaches about their tracks and the common consensus was that other surfaces were much harder and injuries were more common place, particularly in colder climates. The poured surface is substantially more forgiving and since our track has been in place stress fractures have become almost non-existent in our program.

While SI misalignments are common in power speed athletes in a competitive setting, the severity and frequency of said problems magnifies when competing or training on the (rolled rubber) surface.
