Costs to Build a Long Jump Runway

When your organisation chooses to build a long jump runway, it can sometimes be difficult to decide on a budget and surfacing specification to suit the project. We can help guide you through the process to design the perfect athletics facility for you, whether it’s for a school or club, for professional or recreational use.

Specifications to Build a Long Jump Runway

There are a few different surface specification choices to look at when you decide to build a long jump runway. The key is to choose an athletics surface type which best suits your organisation and whoever is going to be using the facility. The most popular choice for professional athletics clubs and colleges is a polymeric rubber long jump runway track, this is a hard surface which is porous and provides great water drainage to prevent flooding and keep the facility safe. Primary schools often choose to have Multisport synthetic needlepunch turf surfacing installed when they build a long jump runway. This can be supplied in a range of rainbow colours and designs and is a much softer and impact absorbing surface choice for younger children.
