Athletics tracks and facilities are becoming extremely popular in schools, colleges and clubs across the UK. They can give an organisation the option to take part in a number of different sports and athletic events including sprinting, long distance running and hurdles. However one of the most popular athletics facilities for schools in particular is a long jump runway and sand pit.
If you would like a quote for building one of these facilities please contact us through the form on this page and we’ll get back to you with some advice on the costs.
Long Jump Surface Specification
If you are looking to construct a long jump runway, the best types are made in many different dimensions and specifications using a polymeric rubber surface, this is made up of lots of granules of EPDM rubber which are stuck together with a binder. Once the rubber surfacing has been laid in situ it gives a fantastic and professional looking athletics facility with top quality performance characteristics which you will be proud of. As well as looking great and performing well, polymeric rubber long jump runways require little maintenance and are porous so they allow water to pass through their surface, meaning that the long jump runway can be an all weather facility. A sand filled landing pit is also installed with every long jump runway and these can be built to suit the individual specifications and requirements of your organisation and the long jump athletics track you are looking for.
We can also construct a long jump runway or other athletics tracks from Multisport artificial grass surfacing which can be installed in a number of bright colours, these alternative athletics tracks are particularly popular in primary schools.
Costs and Prices
The costs to construct a long jump runway can vary greatly depending on a number of factors including the type of surfacing you require, the dimensions and specification of the facility, the location of your organisation and how much use your facility is going to get. We can also offer you help with finance for your project through a funding grant or a finance plan, please visit the website and use the Funding Search Tool to see if you’re eligible for a grant.
