Athletics Alberta’s Executive Director, James Rosnau stated “We are thrilled to be partnered with both Playteck Enterprises and Beynon Sports and their industry-leading products.

Canada’s largest track is currently being built at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex in Saskatoon and we are delighted to be associated with the providers of this industry-leading surface. We are certain this mutually beneficial partnership will collectively help us to further develop athletics-based facilities across the province by making our sport even more accessible and popular.
