University Long Jump Run Up Pit

Soft Surfaces Ltd are a true one stop shop when it comes to the design, specification, funding advice and construction of long jump runways and landing pits and these can suit all standards including college, university, schools and governing body level.

We are known in the UK for our expertise in this sector and we have many different case studies and references. Long jump landing pits can vary on the size, client’s needs, location and budget. They can be tailored to meet most different sizes but a common size for landing pits is 9m x 3m filled with 500mm clean dry silica sand. This will comply with IAAF & UK Athletics standards and will be suitable for any standard. If the landing pit & runway is only for college, school or university standards, a 6m x 3m with 300mm sand infill can be constructed and achieved.

University long jump runways are normally designed and built to a specification of 6m x 3m with 300mm of clean dry silica sand infill. However, many different sizes and dimensions have been achieved to suit various locations, budgets and specifications. The long jump runway is built to a size of 40m x 1.22m with white lines of 50mm width. The surfacing of the long jump is known as Tartan surfacing or EPDM Polymeric and can be made with many different colours.
