Hurdles

100mH

Description

Women start from blocks and negotiate ten 2ft 9in (83.8cm) hurdles spread over a 100m straight. A reaction time – measured by sensors in the starting pistol and on the blocks – of less than 0.1 is deemed a false start and runners will be recalled, and the responsible athlete disqualified.

Once the race is under way there are 13m to the first hurdle, 8.5m between hurdles thereafter, and 10.5m from the final hurdle to the finish. The hurdles are knocked down easily if touched, which allows the athlete to continue the race even if she collides with them. But a runner can be disqualified if she steps out of her designated lane.
