Having a long jump run up constructed at your organisation gives people an opportunity to get involved in athletics events and a less conventional sport that they might not otherwise try. We have installed many of these long jump runway surfaces for projects in the UK and we can design long jump facilities for each different school or club.

All the long jump areas that we install will come with a specially designed sand pit http://www.longjump.org.uk/sand-pit/essex/abbess-end/ which gives a safe landing area where athletes will finish their long jump. These can come in a range of area sizes depending on your available space and the dimensions of your runway surface.

Long Jump Runway Facility Specification

We are experts in long jump runway construction. The long jump runway is the area of the athletics facilities which an athlete will run down before executing their long jump and landing in the sandpit. The surface of the jumping track can be installed in a number of designs and surface types, but there are two main surfacing specifications which we install for these athletics facilities and compact athletics facilities:

  • Artificial Needlepunch Surfacing - This is a synthetic grass surface which is rolled out onto the prepared sub-base for the long jump runway track. This material specification is made up of curly yarn fibres which are woven together to create a stable and durable surface which can withstand heavy use by a school club. The needle punch long jump runway surface has a layer of sand infill at the base of synthetic fibres to help maintain the pile height and create good performance qualities. A lot of primary schools and sports clubs in Abbess End CM5 0 have this synthetic turf surfacing installed for their long jump facilities as it is much softer than the traditional runway surfacing and can prevent injury to younger children. For smaller recreational areas that don't need to be approved for IAAF use, this is a great surface type.
  • Polymeric EPDM Surfacing - This rubber track material is made up of EPDM rubber crumb particles which are combined with a binder and then laid out onto an engineered macadam sub-base layer. Professional sports clubs and local high schools often have polymeric long jump runway surfacing installed is this is the most commonly used surface specification for professional events and competitions, where they will take part in a long jump.

Both of these long jump runway specifications are completely porous to allow water to drain through, preventing flooding and damage to the surface of the athletics facility and the surrounding area. If the sports facility closest to you is not looked after properly, it can lose these porous properties and have a negative effect on the performance and safety qualities of a long jump area in Abbess End.

  • Sand Pit - The sand landing pit is located at the end of the long jump runway and is used as a safe landing area for athletes to complete their long jump, along with making it easy to take distance scores for competitions and events. We can install these sand pits in a number of designs and area sizes to suit the needs of each project, for example, a primary school wouldn't need to have the same size sand pit as an athletics club. Rubber edgings can also be installed around the perimeter of the sandpit to enhance the facility and make the area much safer.

New Facilities and Sugar Tax

Many nearby primary schools are going to receive funding towards the installation of new sporting facilities, and a long jump runway could be installed within the surrounding areas as part of this. The funds are being collected through the new 'sugar tax' which is being implemented by the government to help reduce the number of sugary drinks consumed by children.

The aim of tax is to tackle obesity from a young age, as many kids in the UK are currently classed as obese. By using this extra money made through the sugar tax, primary schools can also have brand new sports facilities built as a way of increasing activity and overall health.

A new generation of cost-effective in addition to lasting outside sporting areas which give a stepping-stone into sports club venues is currently getting created.
