A raised wooden or alluminum run way just seemed like a great option. It would allow for location of the vault competition anywhere within the track area or anywhere else on the campus.
thanks for your thoughts. Would still like to know if anyone is aware of outdoor raised runways ?
I just feel like in the long term, they will spend more money, and definitely more time, having to replace a runway that is not designed for repeated outdoor use.
I am not aware of any facilities that use a portable runway outdoors on a regular basis. For meets only, sure, but they are usually practicing indoors.
