Relays

4x200m

Description

Four sprinters each run one lap of a 200m track. The start is staggered and the first lap is run in designated lanes, as is the second - until the beginning of the back straight. Thereafter runners usually battle to hold the inside line. Each runner must carry a baton during his or her leg and hand it to the subsequent runner within the changeover zone, which is sited 10m either side of what will be finish line.

During their individual legs they have to carry a baton that must be passed to the next runner within a 20m changeover box that’s situated 10m before and 10m after the start of each subsequent leg.
