Rekortan Sponsors USTFCCCA Exhibits Premier Running Surface at Show

Harmony, PA, November 26, 2015 --( Rekortan, Powered by Speed, is one of the sponsors of the upcoming USTFCCA event December 15 – 17 in San Antonio, Texas. Coaches from across the country and world will attend the event for professional development and to learn about technologies applied to the sport and to training of athletes. Rekortan is sponsoring the coaches lunch on December 16.

Rekortan, manufactured by APT, is the track of choice with installations such as the University of Pennsylvania where the world famous Penn Relays are held each spring. Samples of the Rekortan surface will be on display and representatives of APT/Rekortan will be available to discuss track technology. Plus, Olympic athlete and coach Harvey Glance will be available to discuss the features of Rekortan tracks.

Mr. Glance spoke about one of the main benefits of Rekortan: helping prevent injuries. “Without training, there can be no competition. Injuries are one of the few things that an athlete worries about. I can attest that training on a Rekortan surface from 1976 to making my last Olympic team in 1984, I remained healthy. I was jubilant I could recover after each and every training session and that was very key because without being healthy there’s no way you can compete in the sport of track and field.”
