Middle / Long distance

Mile

Description

Runners compete over four laps of a 400m track. They make a bunched standing start and can break immediately for the inside.

In spite of the roughly equivalent 1500 metres race, the mile run is present in all fields of athletics and it remains the only imperial distance for which the IAAF records an official world record.
