In order for your long jump runway surface to be in the best condition possible for high safety and performance standards, it is essential to keep it well maintained with a specifically designed cleaning and maintenance schedule. Putting a regular maintenance programme into place will ensure that there is minimal damage and wearing to the long jump run-up surface and therefore this makes the long jump surfacing more cost effective and schools and clubs can save on the cost of repairs or long jump resurfacing.

Athletics Surface Maintenance
Most athletics surfacing contractors and specialists in the UK will be able to provide specialised sports surface maintenance equipment along with the actual installation of the long jump runway flooring and sand pit. One of the most commonly used pieces of equipment for maintaining a long jump surface is a specially designed sandpit rake, but hang on, couldn’t you just use an ordinary garden rake instead? Well no, actually you can’t, if you want to keep your long jump surface in great condition to ensure the safety of its users and provide the best possible performance qualities for those taking part in the sport, you need to use the correct maintenance equipment.
Long Jump Sandpit Rakes
Plastic sandpit rakes are designed specifically for use on long jump pits; the fibreglass rake handle provides excellent grip and the extra wide head ensures even distribution of sand across the landing pit to allow a steady surface to land on, this therefore helps to prevent injuries. The wide head also means that the sandpit rake can reach across the entire landing surface so no area is missed, as well as clearing away weeds and debris which could contaminate the long jump sandpit. These specialised long jump sand pit rakes are a vital piece of equipment for the maintenance of long jump surfaces at schools, colleges, leisure centres and athletics clubs across the UK, they ensure that the surface is safe especially if kids are using it, and that it provides good performance characteristics for more professional athletes.
