TigerMulch surfacing, with its natural looks and excellent non slip, hard wearing properties makes for the ideal surface for such a ‘mile a day track’ on a school playground or playing field.
Unlike most companies, we strongly recommend installing the track onto a well constructed aggregate sub base, to ensure subsiding, cracking and puddling does not become an issue just a few years after installation. Although a more expensive option at the start, this will undoubtedly save money in the longer term.

TigerMulch – Bound Rubber Mulch
A TigerMulch (our bound rubber mulch), pathway is a great option. Its cheaper than wet pour surfacing, has a similar cushioned feeling to walk or run on and is very durable.
The surface looks a lot like a wood chip and bark mulch so has a nice natural look that blends well in natural and urban settings.
As it is made from recycled lorry tyres, it’s also a highly durable and porous surface meaning you will not cause any localised flooding or puddling issues. Rubber mulch is also resistant to becoming slippery in the wet or in icy conditions.
Wet Pour Rubber – Athletics Track
We can apply Wet Pour Rubber very much like an athletics track. Great for colours and patterns its a lovely surface to jog on.
However it is expensive and usually needs the right surface to be a good lasting solution.

The ‘Mile A Day’ initiative has rapidly grown in popularity in schools over recent years, as understanding of the importance of a fit and healthy childhood increases.
What is the Mile A Day?
The Mile A Day is a charity that aims to get children more active by undertaking a daily 15 minute run.
It’s simple and non competitive
Only 15 minutes per day
No staff training or equipment required
Children run in their uniform
Helps to improve fitness, health and concentration
Redlynch Leisure Can Help
As a specialists in surfacing with over 20 years experience we can advise you in the most cost effective Mile A Day Tracks for your children to run around.
As the Mile a Day is a year round activity, grass surfaces can turn to a muddy mess and concrete or tarmac can be quite hard on knee and ankle joints. Some cheap solutions have poor longevity.
Usually the best Mile A Day Jogging Track solutions are bound rubber crumb or rubber mulch (TigerMulch).
