RED DOG... AN ATHLETIC TRADITION for Over 50 Years
Presently: Red Dog Tracks, Inc.
Early cinder running tracks were just that – boiler cinders. This type of track still exists in some parts of the country, but it has many disadvantages. For example, the cinders are light, will blow, and float away in a rain storm. Their main drawback is the failure of the cinders to bind together to form a firm competitive surface.
Many years ago, H.C. Vandaveer, a resident of North Texas, observed the unique characteristics of a red slag material (called Red Dog) that occurs in that area. The Red Dog particles were bound together by finer clay particles thus producing a firm but resilient running surface. The Red Dog was not as abrasive as cinders, and it was heavier than water. It didn’t float away.
The resulting years have seen the construction of over 1000 Red Dog tracks in the southwestern and midwestern parts of the country.
