School Recreational Long Jump Runway Surfacing Facility

Long jump is now becoming more and more popular with Schools, colleges and sports clubs. Long Jump has a standard minimum runway of 45m and this is normally made out of Polymeric EPDM / Tartan surfacing. The long jump runway also has a minimum width of 1.22m and can have a Timber take off board / White line mark take off point.

The minimum size of the landing pit is normally 9.0m x 3.0m and this will meet with IAAF recommendations. The Timber Take Off board is a white, primed hardwood board which is sunk flush into the ground, level with the Polymeric surface. The Long Jump Board has dimensions of 1.22m long x 200mm Wide x 100mm deep.
