Stride length and strength what makes a decent curve runner. Also, if you practice the curves you get used to the lean required to keep you going at a fast pace. Long striders that reach run curves poorly, while long striders with greater strength and force production run them well if they keep a rhythm. Hurdlers, Jumpers, and big weight lifters make excellent curve runners as 800prince said.
