Costs to construct Triple Jump Athletics Facility

After the sporting success of the summer why not add to your athletic facilities to breed the next generation of superstars. The costs of building a triple jump run up can be tailor fit to meet the schools budget or the sports clubs funding pot they have available.

Triple Jump Athletics Facility Specifications

To comply with IAAF and UK Athletic specification a triple jump runway should be a total length of 58 meters (Men); with a maximum length of 45 meters before the take off board with a further 13 meters to the pit where the hop and skip phases would take place.  The pit speciation matches that of a long jump being 9 meters long, 3 meters wide with a depth of 500mm.

If you are looking to build a triple jump athletics facility for children this size of run way would be unsuitable and unnecessary and this is reflected in the cost. Here at soft surfaces we can construct a triple jump runway to fit almost any budget and level of participation, there are many factors that can be compromised bringing the price down effectively.

A more suitable run way size for boys and girls would be a 30 meter track to the first board followed by a 8 meters to the pit giving it the size and dimensions 38m x 1.22m.  Reducing the pit size is also an option for example this could be reduced to 6m x 3m x 300mm. We have a wide range of colours available to give your runway its unique look, for example if you schools colours is blue why not have a blue run way? The options are endless but if it is the cheapest you’re looking for a black EPDM would be the cheapest without sacrificing anything in terms of quality.

There are also a number of optional extras you add to your triple jump pit :

  • Rubber Edgings in the pit (Maximise Safety)
  • Mowing Strip, Concrete or Rubber
  • Sand Pit Cover
  • Fixed Take off Boards
  • Removable Take off Boards.
