I am reviewing some of the information on the USATF site and in the powerpoint notes
“400m Hurdles with Kim Batten” Terry N. Long there is a measurement I am confused about.
“Last Hurdle to Finish” M&W 300H = 10m
400H = 40m
Do not all intermediate hurdle distances use the same hurdle markings on the track (35m spacings)? With the adjustments made as to the number of flights (based on overall distance) and total distance at the start line?
We don’t run a lot of 300mH events here and the outdoor track is under about 3 feet of snow at this moment but diagrams I have make the 1st hurdle of a 300mH run 50m from the start line, each flight 35m apart and that means the last hurdle to finish is the same 40m as in 400mH.
