Long jump runways and landing pits can be adapted to suit many different levels of sport, including national governing body level, college level and school standard. Dimensions of the runway / run – up and landing pit can change to suit the client’s specification, budget, design and location.
IAAF standard long jump landing pit is 9m x 3m, filled with at least 500mm of clean dry silica sand. This is also an acceptable specification for UK Athletics. If the standard of the runway and landing pit is only recreational level, the landing pit can have sizes and dimensions of 6m x 3m, of 300mm depth. The runway of the long jump is a minimum of 40m x 1.22m, with white lines to be 50mm in width. The construction of the college or other long jump runs up is an EPDM recycled rubber Polymeric system / Tartan surfacing. This can be built in many different colours, to suit the needs of the customer.
