These can be installed for a number of reasons as they can provide a hard standing area for the referee to assess the jump length. They can also provide an area that will prevent weeds from entering the actual sand landing pit and the landing sand pit edging can also provide protection from newly cut grass from entering the sand landing pit.

Athletics Facility Sand Pits
We can install the athletics facility sand pits along with the run up surfacing in a range of designs. Schools and clubs often choose to have these for various different activities. They’re suitable for long jump, triple jump and a number of other activities. We are able to install the facilities in a range of sizes to suit your available space and budget.
Jump Landing Pits
The long jump landing pits are there to provide a soft area for athletes to land when completing a jump. These usually contain sand which helps to absorb impact and prevent any injuries when landing after a jump. The long jump runways come in a range of different materials and we can tailor these to suit what you need.
The sand pit edgings can be made from EPDM rubber surfacing and this is also known as soft safety surface or poured in place. We can also install them using pre cast concrete (PCC). Both surface types have a standard width of 450mm but these can be tailored to suit most designs, specifications and budget requirements. Sport England & Inspired Facilities are now providing lots of grants/funding for these types of projects which makes current surface upgrades or new construction easier.
There are plenty of options available when building these athletics sand pits. Depending on your budget or the specification you need, we will find the right product for you. It’s also important to remember that regular maintenance should be carried out to these areas to ensure they stay in top condition.
