What is a Triple Jump Runway?
A triple jump runway is an athletics facility which is often found at sports clubs and schools. It usually comprises of a run up track and a sand landing pit, and these can be fitted in many different sizes and shapes. Professional training facilities may be installed in larger area sizes, whereas a smaller more compact facility could be perfect for a school sports track.
The different triple jump surfacing we offer includes a polymeric rubber specification and a synthetic turf carpet. We would generally recommend the rubber flooring for a club standard track, whereas the artificial turf is ideal for recreational use.
Building Athletics Jump Tracks
We install athletics runways across the country for schools, colleges, leisure centres and athletics clubs. We can tailor the triple jump construction process to make the surface either suitable for competitive or recreational use, making the price more flexible for institutions on a tight budget, this allows schools to give their students an opportunity to try something new.
This video below shows a multipurpose run up being build at a school. Our expert team completed this work, carrying out the full groundworks and fitting the runway surfacing and sand landing pit.
We also then make sure once we have installed the facility, or if someone has an existing facility that is becoming worn down, to offer them an extensive maintenance scheme to ensure they get the best out of their surface. Through a thorough maintenance scheme, you can also make sure that the surface is completely safe, this is vital for schools as they have to take full responsibility for the children using it; this makes maintenance an extremely important part of the services we offer.
How to Maintain Athletic Surfaces
Another main service we offer is the full cleaning of the athletics surface, this similar to maintenance and is an extremely important part of triple jump services as it ensures that the product life of the facility is greatly increased, and also makes sure that the flooring is safe for those using it. We are able to supply a specialist triple jump sand pit cover which is designed to keep the landing pit free from dirt when it is not in use. Having this helps to reduce the need for a lot of maintenance work, and prevents the pit from getting contaminated.
The triple jump services maintenance costs may seem irritating and a waste of money to some, but through a regular and intense maintenance and cleaning scheme, the longevity of a sports surface is greatly increased. The safety of the area is also much better; this is a key aspect to take into account for those who intend to rent out the facility or let children use it. Any project should take into account the costs for maintenance as they really are a key part of the surface’s life. We aim to offer the best possible products and services at the greatest value for money; this ensures happy customers with great facilities that are both safe and long lasting.
Woodhouse grove school
Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.

It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product.

Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
Triple Jump Service Costs
The prices for this kind of work will vary depending on the size and specifications of the flooring, as the construction of a larger running track would be more expensive than a smaller one. We can help you have control over costs by offering different specifications and designs to help create the perfect surface for you whilst making sure you remain within your budget. This could be a more extensive sand pit cover system for those willing to spend more to look after their facility.
If you are struggling the find the budget for this work, you may be able to apply for a grant. Some schools and clubs are eligible for triple jump funding to help cover the costs, so this may be something you could look into. We’ll always try to make the costs as affordable as possible, but our prices will depend on the nature of the work that needs to be done.
