Hey athletes! if you’ve landed here you’re getting ready, and motivated, to run your 400 meter dash! This is a tough challenge, so make sure you pay attention to the protocol below to ensure your entries count when you submit them.

Instructions

Equipment

  1. 400 meter track or treadmill

  2. Stop watch or electronic timing system

  3. Someone to operate filming and timing

Directions

The athlete must first toe the line to start. Prompted by a “go” electronic beep, or a starting pistol, the athlete must complete 1 lap around a 400 meter track scored in minutes and seconds to the nearest 100th/sec. The runner and timer must be in the same time frame at all times. If you don’t have access to a track, use a treadmill and the same rules will apply. See the video for a visual.
