Are you thinking about building a long jump facility? If the answer to this question is yes, then look no further than us! We are a one-stop contractor in sports facility construction with many years of experience. We have a team of experts on hand to offer you free, friendly and professional advice to any query you may have.
IAAF and UK athletic regulations state that the runway of a long jump should be 45m x 1.22m. The size and dimensions of the pit should be 9m x 3m x 500mm. A 13mm layer of EPDM should be laid onto an engineered sub base offering the greatest level of stability (Macadam/Tarmac).
Your school or establishment may not need a long jump to this standard and that’s fine! We can construct a long jump pit runway to almost any budget as there are many components that can be altered to bring down costs. These include reducing the length of the runway, choosing a different surface system as well as reducing the depth of the pit.
An example of a long jump constructed for recreational use would be a runway at 35m x 1.22m, a black EPDM surface and a pit size of 6m x 3m x 300mm. This is just one example of how the costs can be reduced.
If you just want to use the area for recreational activities or practise, a smaller facility can be installed. This helps primary schools and smaller clubs
