Long jump runway surfacing is more popular than ever within schools, colleges, universities, leisure centres and sports clubs throughout the UK. These facilities are relatively easy to construct and each design can be altered to suit many different budgets and specifications. We can help you choose the perfect design to suit the people who will be using the area.

Depending on the amount of space available, we can install a single or multi-lane long jump run up and specialist sand landing pit which will dramatically enhance the athletics facilities at your establishment. The specification is completely up to you so please contact us today to talk about the work in more detail and get an idea of the costs.

Athletics Long Jump Pit Surfaces

If you are interested in having a newly constructed or renovated long jump installed in your establishment it helps to provide information including; idea of space available, the location of the job, they type of surface you require and the budget you have in mind. If you can provide this information to a specialist sports contractor, they will be able to offer you costs and advice on the most suitable athletics long jump surfaces for your requirements. Many schools, colleges, leisure centres and sports clubs would opt for the Multisport™ synthetic surfacing for athletics facilities due to their performance qualities and longevity of the product, however it is solely down to the design and specification set out by each particular client.

There are also many extras for each of the athletics long jump pit surfaces, again depending on budget and design requirements. These include items such as:

  • Synthetic / Rubberised Mowing Strips – mowing strips are commonly installed around the landing pits of these facilities and are used for both aesthetic and specific purposed. A synthetic mowing strip prevents any weed growth and prevents the surrounding grass from entering the sand landing pit when mowing the field during the summer.
  • Rubber Edges Around Landing pit  – often used as edging detail around the landing pit in place of PCC and timber edges in order to add extra safety for users.
  • Sand Pit Cover – Bespoke landing pit covers to fit different designs and dimensions.
  • Landing Pit Rake – allows sand to be regulated and spread evenly throughout the pit ensuring safety and aesthetic.
