Warning Track Surfacer

With a larger particle size, this surfacer gives players a clear visual and physical warning that they are nearing the fence. The ½” minus particle size also allows for the best drainage of the three warning track blends. This mix is preferred by teams who want to have a distinct ‘crunch’ underfoot as an indication that the fielder is nearing the wall. The Warning Track Surfacer comes in Mar-Co’s signature red colour, giving your ball field a professional look.

Running Track Surfacer

This mixture has a higher level of silt and sand than the other warning track materials, so it will set up more firmly. If you like a warning track that offers solid footing and a smooth feel — or have areas that are prone to washouts – this is the right product for you. This Running Track Surfacer comes in Mar-Co’s signature red colour, giving your ball field a professional look.

  • "Mar-Co improved drainage to the infield, reduced labour costs for the municipality, and decreased the number of injuries during play with the softer clay. Not only that, but now it looks like the kids are playing on a big-league field, which brings smiles to their faces."

    "Mar-Co improved drainage to the infield, reduced labour costs for the municipality, and decreased the number of injuries during play with the softer clay. It’s great to see the smiles on the kids’ faces as they walk onto the field. It looks like they’re playing on a big-league field, and maybe they will someday, thanks to Mar-Co Clay."

  • "Within two weeks of contacting Mar-Co to seek advice about a neglected ball field, they’d delivered clay and had a crew on the job. They did an amazing job and – to our absolute amazement – this little town has a beautiful and playable field once again."

  • Mar-Co Clay testimonial Jim Puhalla

    "In my 35 years experience in testing and installing baseball and softball field skinned area soil, I recently found the best mixture ever – Mar-Co Clay Ball Diamond Products."

    "In my 35 years experience in testing and installing baseball and softball field skinned area soil, I recently found the best mixture ever – Mar-Co Clay Ball Diamond Products. It’s the best in evaporation rate, playability, ease of maintenance, and stability (resists rutting and moving into the grass edge). And the number overall quality is it doesn’t get muddy when wet. It’s amazing. All my customers love it."

  • "Mar-Co’s Garden Path surface material has been a game changer for my grounds crew. Not only does it make our field look amazing by framing it with red, but the drainage and support it provides after rainfall has saved us games, effort, and – most important – time."
