Design Specification for Jumping Tracks

There are a few different design specifications for jumping tracks to choose from when you have the long jump runway facility installed; each surface type has individual qualities which are better suited to different projects.

  • Polymeric Rubber

    • This material is the most traditional for athletics tracks and long jump surfaces. It's made up of polymeric EPDM rubber crumb, which is mixed together with a binder and laid out onto a sub base. The sub-base for a polymeric surface would be made up of a layer of angular stones and macadam, which creates a stable foundation for the long jump runway surfacing.
  • Needlepunch Synthetic Turf

    • This fibre bonded artificial grass material is woven together and infilled with silica sand to create a durable and hard-wearing surface. The needle punch synthetic turf is popular with primary school jumping tracks and compact facilities. It provides a more comfortable landing surface to prevent injury from trips and falls when young children use the facility. You can also choose from several colour options and rainbow designs with this particular specification, making the long jump runway, even more engaging for kids.
  • Sand Pit

    • The landing pit area is an important part of the full long-jump facility installation in Bristol It provides a safe surface for athletes to land on and gives accurate distance scores once the jump has been completed. Washed and dried silica sand is used in the landing pit, and the area size may be altered to meet the requirements of each project.

Construction of Long Jumps Near Me

The construction of long jumps usually follows a similar process. However, every project varies slightly, and no two jobs are the same.

The installation starts with excavating the existing area and preparing the ground, a geotextile membrane is laid out to stop the growth of weeds and contaminations, and then the sub base is put down.

The sub-base for a polymeric long jump runway will include a layer of angular stones and then a layer of macadam. A needle punch runway could have the same sub base system or just have the angular stones without the macadam. We will also install a long jump pit in Bristol BS4 3 located at the end of the runway and provides athletes with a safe place to land their jump.

When it comes to installing the jumping track surfacing, this process is different for each surface type.

The polymeric surfacing is poured out onto the sub base and left to dry, whereas the needle punch synthetic turf will be rolled out, similarly to a carpet, and then secured at the edges. Line markings can be applied to both surface specifications so that the facility and surrounding areas may be used for both long and triple jump events at different distances.

AAA Sports Organisation

You may come across the AAA Sports Organisation when looking into the athletics sector; the AAA is known as Amateur Athletic Association. It is the original governing body for athletics and was around before UK Athletics.

The group continues to exist to stand for the volunteer area of the sport but not to govern. In addition, various academic institutions in Bristol BS4 3 and other Great Britain organisations work together with the Amateur Athletic Association.

This organisation offers open forums, setting up competitions which will help with the development of younger athletes. The AAA has produced these competitions to act as development tools for grassroots and help youngsters develop in the future.

A second duty presented to the Amateur Athletic Association is safeguarding the history of the particular sport.

Top-level athletes are often rewarded with exceptional and historical medals and trophies by the governing body. In addition, many people closest to you are becoming interested in sports due to work carried out by this group. To find out more about AAA organisation, please complete the contact form provided.

National Athletic Competitions

The Amateur Athletic Association holds National athletic competitions to increase the involvement in children’s sports. In addition, sports products and sponsorships are often financed by the organisation because they give cash to events like the National Championships whenever possible.

UK Athletics and British Athletics are the governing authorities to this sport; however, Amateur Athletic Association stands for volunteering.

The AAA creates new track and field standards for various sports activities every year, which is then submitted.

These kinds of requirements depend on the results of past events and generate four unique grades that the greatest sports athletes get categorised into. The overall performance standards for the sports and athletics events are compiled by databases of information collected through the years, and this is revised every two years.

These standards are awarded to children with badges along with certificates.

Plaques are also given out in Bristol by the Amateur Athletic Association to kids who achieve Grade 1, which improves the number of people participating in athletics. In addition, small grants or loans are available to young people looking to take up a career in athletics by the AAA Charity for the Young.

Compact Long Jump Surfaces Near Me in Bristol

Many sports clubs and schools have started to have more cost-effective facilities constructed for sports and athletics. However, many young people do not get the opportunity to engage in athletics because schools and colleges find it difficult to have high-quality sporting areas like long-jump tracks installed.

This may often be because of limited space outside or a lack of available funds for the school.

In some establishments, compact long jump surfaces and sports facilities are now being developed and built in smaller sizes to match restricted spending budgets and be more cost-effective. They are also designed to improve the FUNdamental sporting motion skills of run, jump and throw.

These facilities enhance the kids' running, jumping and throwing, and even multiple activity participation in athletics in academic institutions. Running tracks, jumping run ups, and discus circles are some favoured facilities that can be fitted. In addition, multi-activity areas can be achieved by setting up a single track; this can be used for long-jump, relay races, hurdles and many others.

Both primary and secondary schools that cannot get a full-sized track make a fantastic alternative much less expensive and take up significantly less room. For more details on athletics, please click here http://www.longjump.org.uk/athletics/bristol/

When someone completely enjoys performing a certain activity such as long-jump or discus, they can progress onto professional clubs inside the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, there are not many facilities that target people at the beginners level, making young children unwilling to participate in athletics.

Little ones need to participate in sports at a young age - KS One and Two - and carry on through KS Three and KS Four. A new sports and athletics model in Bristol BS4 3 has been produced by UKA, permitting small children to access sports and athletics areas.

The newest model could be constructed in vibrant colours to appeal to younger people and is also more cost-effective, meaning it is a fantastic entry-level sports facility for academic institutions.

What Long Jump Surface Works Best? 

Polymeric rubber crumb is the most prevalent surfacing type for athletics long jump sport venues.

This surface is composed of a large number of EPDM rubberised granules that have been linked together. This is the ideal surface type for various sports since it provides both stability and an excellent playing surface.


The main target for UKA is to motivate kids and young people to engage with sporting activities together with athletics, which is why these kinds of facilities are essential. This is developed even more by hosting IAAF and IPC World Championships in London in 2017.
