In addition, the LSU venue, located on the university’s Baton Rouge campus, received the award for Outdoor Running Surface in the Distinguished Track Facilities category. JDL Fast Track, Winston-Salem, N.C., was named the winner for Indoor Track Facility in the same category.

Mondo rubber flooring is used throughout the facility: Advance in the gymnasium; Bollo Extra on wheelchair ramps and stairs; Mondotrack for the 1/10 mile track; Natura in the foyer, common areas and trainers' area; Sportflex in the exercise equipment area; and Sport Impact in the weight room.
