There are two Long Jump pits which are also used for Triple Jump events. Both have Mondo-surfaced runways. There is one Pole Vault area with a Mondo-surfaced runway.
The High Jump competition is held on the infield. There are two high jump areas which are located at the east and west end of the infield. Both have Mondo-surfaced run-up areas.
