Pole Vault is a sport that more and more UK sports clubs and schools are now participating in due to extra funding from Sport England and increased TV coverage from the London 2012 Olympics. Pole Vault ha standard runway or run up dimensions of 45m by 1.22m wide and it has a standard take off box at the end of the runway. The run up is made from Polymeric EPDM rubber crumb surfacing and this is often known as Tartan surfacing.
The pole vault take off box has a standard size of 1.084m x 600mm and has an overall inclination of 1:1000 and a lateral inclination of 1:100. These dimensions will comply with the IAAF guidelines although the system can be designed and specified to suit many different area sizes and dimensions, depending on the level of sport to be played.
