My name is Chris Mitchell, a Penn State Engineer with a passion for coaching Track & Field. My specialty is the Pole Vault and Jumps. I am a USATF Level I & II Certified Jumps Coach and USTFCCCA Certified Jumps Specialist Coach. In 2009, I spent a year designing a complete runway system that satisfied my engineering mind. To my surprise, it quickly became a hit across the country, meeting College, High School and Club needs for a more efficient and cost effective solution for indoor/outdoor sports complexes. These are the Ultimate Pole Vault and Long/Triple Jump Runway Systems! Every detail of my runway systems are a jumper's dream, from the proprietary marking system to the near seamless interconnect system. My design consists of only heavy duty screws, NO nails. The pole vault plant box section is specifically designed to fit in between the front buns of any pit, including the newer UCS pits where the front buns and extensions hug the plant box tightly. I designed the plant box so it will never blow out and gives a near feel of a box set in concrete. My Long/Triple Jump Runways come complete with a separate jump/foul board combo that is fully synthetic and replaceable in each of the three included jump locations. You can't beat the forgiveness, yet springy feel of this runway system on your legs. I pride myself on professional workmanship and attention to detail.
