I recently tried to map a running track at a local high school and forgotten most of the tags and methods which required some research to remind myself again. I know I’ve done this before so wanted to write it down for next time. I didn’t think my scratchpad/user page on the OSM Wiki was sufficient.
I’m most often mapping in high school track and field areas/stadiums.

leisure=track sport=athletics athletics=running lanes=*
Long Jump Wikipage = https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:athletics%3Dlong_jump
Map the track with an area and tag as:
leisure=track sport=athletics athletics=long_jump surface=tartan lanes=1 area=yes oneway=no (two pits)
Map the pit(s) with an area and tag as:
leisure=pitch sport=athletics athletics=long_jump surface=sand
