School Budgets Athletics Track Long Jump Runway Specifications

Long jump in the UK is now an ever popular part of UK school curriculum and sports club participation. Long jump has a standard specification which meets with the IAAF approval. This specification or design for a long jump is a landing pit of 9.0m x 3.0m and a long jump runway of 45m x 1.22m width.

The runway is often called Tartan runway but is made from EPDM recycled Polymeric rubber which is applied via trowel. Long Jump also has a takeoff board and this is often made from a white hardwood timber and the dimensions are 1.22m x 200mm x 100mm. Long jump can also be constructed to fit with most designs and specifications depending on client budgets, funding and probable sporting use / level of competition.
