Long jump is becoming more popular in the UK due to the continued investment made by Sport England and to the London 2012 Olympic effects! Soft Surfaces Ltd are one of many sports sector companies who specialise in the construction, design, specification and costings of these specialist sports surfaces.
The long jump runway or run up is made from a top surface of recycled rubber EPDM rubber crumb which is bonded together with a PU polyurethane bind. The dimensions or size of the runway is 45m by 1.22m and a landing pit size of 9.0m x 2.75m, although these dimensions can be adjusted to suit most sizes, budgets and funding allocations. These dimensions meet the IAAF guidelines but many other dimensions can be achieved. The long jump runway contractors all use similar construction techniques and there are only several suppliers within the UK who can do these works.
Soft Surfaces Ltd have installed many types of systems to suit and we would be happy to discuss your project needs. Specifications, designs, pricing, quotations and construction are all areas of our expertise. Please visit our website or call us on 01625 445760
