Imperial sprint distances

(Paul Curtis (C)) #1

The sprints are (I assume) are 200 and 400 meters long. This is translated into .1 and .2 miles. For quite a while I would start a .1 mile sprint at 30 mph and be baffled that the estimated time did not say 12 seconds. Then it occurred to me that they were really metric sprints and that a .1 mile long sprint was really .125 miles long.

Hi Paul,

The sprints are both totally “arbitrary” distances. It’s not a clean number in either metric or statute. It’s designed to be “about” 10sec and “about” 20sec.

Ride On,
