VMI’s New Rise-N-Run Hydraulic Indoor Track Ranks with the Elite
Beynon’s Engineering and Sports Surfacing Technology on Display at the Keydets Indoor Training Facility
The Virginia Military Institute indoor fieldhouse has joined the ranks of the elite facilities in the country to feature a hydraulically banked track system. The specialized Beynon surface is at the center of the new 205,000 square foot athletic and military training facility.
The hydraulically banked track and field system includes a retractable steel frame with a custom-built control system; all designed and built in the United States by Beynon Sports of Hunt Valley, Maryland.
The completed facility known as the Corps Physical Training Facility, showcases Beynon’s Rise-N-Run Hydraulic system, which allows athletes to raise and lower the track surface to specific angles of embankment to counteract centrifugal force caused by their circular motion and achieve unparalleled racing times.
“The responsiveness of the track has been outstanding,” said Darrin Webb, Director of Track & Field. “It has a great feeling and great “return of energy” in moving the athlete forward.”
“To have Beynon’s hydraulic track at the center of one of the nation’s most acclaimed military training institutions is an honor,” said John Beynon, President of Beynon Sports. “The finished project at VMI exceeded everyone’s expectations. We commend the Virginia Military Academy - they have built an amazing athletic complex to train the fine men and women who protect our country.”
After hosting the Southern Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships several times, VMI has established itself as a gathering place for regional track competition. With the addition of Beynon’s indoor hydraulic track, the Keydets are sure to draw more attention than ever before.
“And the facility is all inclusive, which is probably the greatest excitement for our team,” Webb said. “Time is of the greatest demand at VMI, and training on a Beynon track; throwing, and jumping in an outstanding facility, and being able to have their locker rooms, weight room and athletic training room in the same building is a great benefit for our teams.”
