Javelin runways have a standard distance, length and dimensions that are applicable to UK Athletics and IAAF designs and specifications. If you have a specific size that you have to use or only have a minimal budget or costs, Soft Surfaces Ltd can design and construct Javelin Run ups to suit most budget requirements. Standard javelin runways are made from Sprayed EPDM rubber but this is more commonly known as tartan surfacing or a Polymeric surface.
The length of this runway is 36.5m but with a minimum length or 30m. It has a construction width of 4.3m with a throwing arc with an 8m radius. The lines on the Javelin runway are normally 50mm wide and white and the runway has 2 parallel lines which are 4m apart. Inspired Facilities and Sport England are now giving away funding or grants for javelin construction as part of the Olympic Legacy with a view of getting more children taking part or being introduced to the sport.
Soft Surfaces Ltd can help you with any designs, specifications, costing or quotations that you may need in this area. Please visit our website or call 01625 445760 for more information
