Standard competition layout

This diagram below the layout recommended by the IAAF as Standard Competition Area. The field events are evenly distributed over the arena to avoid congestion and to satisfy the needs of the spectators. This layout avoids undue disruption of events by ceremonies and counterbalances the concentration of interest in the finish area.

Track events

Track events include sprint, middle distance, hurdle and steeplechase events. The 400m oval track forms the basis of a multi‑­sports arena and its dimensions are dependent on the requirements of other sports.

 

The competition area for track events includes the following:

(1) Oval track with at least four lanes and safety zones measuring no less than 1m on the inside and outside.

(2) Straight with minimum of six lanes for sprints and hurdles.

(3) Steeplechase track as for oval track with a permanent water jump.

(4) There are three basic types of track surface—synthetic, unbound mineral (cinder) and grass.


400m standard track

The 400m Standard Track (the Track) has straight and curved sections of almost equal length and uniform bends which are most suitable to the running rhythm of athletes. Furthermore, the area inside the track is large enough to accommodate all throwing events and also a standard football (soccer) pitch (68m x 105m).

The Track comprises 2 semicircles, each with a radius of 36.50m, which are joined by two straights, each 84.39m in length.

The Track has 8, 6 or occasionally 4 lanes but the last is not used for international running competition. All lanes have a width of 1.22m ± 0.01m.

Page 35 of the Manual Setting out the 400m standard Track section 2.2.1 shows in detail the setting out plan and dimensions of the 400m standard track.
