Improve your track and field skills with our athletics facilities at Club La Santa
Outer track for leisure running
We have incorporated a dedicated 450m outer running lane with a width of 3.60m-4.00m to our athletics stadium. This surface is dedicated to leisure running due to the hardness of the surface. Track surface normally has a shock absorption effect of 40%. If you go to a normal running track with running shoes made for trails or asphalt, with cushioning effects of approx. 15% and 10% respectively, this can lead to knee and hip damage. Many people do come to running tracks with their normal, soft running shoes from home. For this reason we have laid out the outer running track with a surface that has shock absorption of at most 20%, half as much as normal running track surface, to spare your hips and knees.
There is a leading light strip on the outer running lane to accommodate evening runs.
Polytan SmarTracks – the newest benchmark technology is here
Runners and track athletes can be benchmarked in so many different ways, depending on the data you wish to receive.
With Polytan SmarTracks we have made it possible to receive all this data by wearing a belt that tracks your motion in relation to the running track.
This will be incorporated on the outer two 110m sprint lanes, the inner lane, and the 45m runway for triple- and long jump. The data will be available in real-time on computers or smartphones connected to the internet. Multiple groups can use the technology at the same time. Individual guests are also able to use this feature.
SmarTracks will also be incorporated into our 5-a-side surface which will allow custom agility tests and drills in sports such as football, handball and others.
