Long Jump is a sport which has seen a little bit of a renaissance due to it being specified by many schools, sports clubs and colleges. This can be accredited to things like the Olympics and Long Jump can be constructed to meet most designs and specifications. Long Jump does have standard track dimensions. The Runway has a minimum length of 45m and a width of 1.22m.
The landing long jump sand pit has dimensions of 9.0m x 3.0m and this meets with IAAF approval. The Timber white hardwood long jump take off board has standard dimensions of 1.22m x 200x 100mm. However, the construction of the long jump can be made to suit different governing body requirements, sporting requirements or to be built to a set cost. The long jump runway/track is built from a Tartan surface and this is often called a Polymeric surface, this is made from a recycled EPDM rubber which is trowelled onto a suitable sub base.
