Long Jump Landing Pit Specification

The other obvious component of a long/triple jump facility is the sand pit, this is where the results and success of the jump is recorded. As with the long-jump runway there are a number of ways that the landing pit can vary to fit the requirements and budgets for the potential user in North Yorkshire . The obvious variation that stands out is the size and dimensions of the long / triple jump runway sand pit: an IAAF standard triple jump and long-jump landing pit is 9m x 2.75m and although this is necessary for international athletes and sports clubs, it is not for a primary school. A primary school in North Yorkshire YO23 2 may choose to have a pit 6m x 3m as it is extremely unlikely that any children or kids will jump further than that. Extra features can be supplied along with the long-jump sand pit installation, we can offer maintenance tools and athletics sand pit covers https://longjumprunway.co.uk/sand-pit-cover/north-yorkshire to help you look after the facility.

At high schools, colleges and universities in North Yorkshire , where it is more likely there will be certain pupils who excel at athletic track and field events such as long and triple jump it may be necessary to have a sand pit closer to the IAAF requirements e.g. 7-9m x 3m. The reason that a school may choose to have a wider landing sand pit would be to have a polymeric surface at the side of the sand pit where pupils can practice technique such as take off before recording their final jumps. This side unit also allows a maximum number of pupils to participate so they are not getting bored, cold or distracted when taking part in long-jump lessons. Some schools have smaller sized long-jump tracks and jogging circuits in surrounding areas which are for recreational use and don't need to meet IAAF standards. These are known as compact athletic facilities which allow kids to take part in a range of sports all in one place.
