The first competition, the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Outdoor Track and Field Championships, runs now through May 1 at the Ken Herrick Outdoor Track on the campus of Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan.

Aggie Stadium's Irwin Belk Track at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina, is the site of the second contest, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Men's and Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championships April 30-May 1.

Both schools have Super X Performance surfaces made by Mondo.

About Mondo's Tracks

The world's top track for more than 30 years, Mondo's renowned Super X Performance track is recognized around the world as one of the fastest, most durable and environmentally safest tracks available. An official track of eight Olympic Games through 2004 and the competition surface from 1992 to 2004 (the company's Mondotrack was the competition surface of the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics), Super X Performance was designed to provide consistent performance throughout its life. Ideal for both training and high-performance competition, the track is known for its shock absorption and optimal energy return, and its ideal blend of speed and comfort minimizes the occurrence of injuries.

Designed for superior athletic performance, Mondotrack provides optimal traction and a greater contact area than other tracks. Building on the success of the company's renowned Super X Performance track, Mondotrack converts the maximum amount of force generated by athletes' foot strikes to energy for maximum energy return, which helps athletes achieve faster times compared to running on other surfaces.

Mondo's Super X 720 track surface combines the backing of Mondotrack and the wear layer of the company's Super X Performance track which are vulcanized together to form one continuous, seamless piece of material that delivers exceptional traction, durability, drainage and safety. The backing provides exceptional shock absorbency and energy return, which further helps the performance layer increase athletes' comfort and enables them to achieve faster times than when running on other surfaces.

More than 250 world records have been set on tracks made by Mondo.
