Best Answer

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.
