Default chosing track surface, please help

the place my club is planning to run at right now is quite slippery, its a kind of rubber paint. we tried foams radials and slicks, but none of them worked. were tihnking of carpet but its abit expensive for us.

any other suggestions other than that?

Thanks.

(we setup our track once a week so it has to be rolled up or we can leave it outside if its waterproof.)

you can try spraying it with soda.. but then the clean up might be a bit much..

What is the surface made of? This will help in diagnosing a problem.
