You can have a simple sandpit dug about half a meter in the ground.

For the runway you will need three blocks of wood dug into the ground a meter apart and your done.

How do you measure a triple jump?

A triple jump is measured from the line (from which the jumper starts their jump) to the point closest to the line from where the jumper has landed, if the jumper lands but proceeds to fall backwards towards the line the jump will not measure from where their feet land but the point closest to the line where ANY part of their body has touched the sand. The jumper must continue forwards to depart the sand pit, not back towards the line or the jump will be measured from line to closest point the jumper has touched in the sand. Also, the jumper must begin their jump from in front of the line or on the line but if their foot goes over the line this will be cause for disqualification.

What is the measurements of long jump?

Runners run down a runway to a board 20 cm wide they must jump from without the planting foot crossing the plane of the board(forward) and land in a sand pit. From the forward edge of the board to the place nearest where the runner landed in the sand pit is the jump distance measured in meters. In the USA this measurement is in meters and/or feet.
