North Island Masters
Long Hurdles

The distance of the long hurdle race varies from 200m to 400m, depending on age and gender. The height of the hurdle also varies. Unlike short hurdles, the gap between each barrier stays the same (35m).

The event has been part of the Olympics athletics since 1900 for men and 1984 for women.

Women start with 400m and a hurdle height of 0.762m. From aged 50, the women race 300m and the distance further reduces to 200m at age 70. The hurdle height is dropped to 0.686m at age 60.

Men start with 400m and a hurdle height of 0.991m. From aged 60, the distance is reduced to 300m and then again to 200m from age 80. The hurdle height is dropped to 0.84m at age 50, 0.762m at age 60 and then to 0.686m at age 70.

To be valid for a record in the 200mH, a time must be run with a wind reading of +2.0 or less.

It was common for non-standard distances to be run as recently a the late 1990s e.g. W45s running 200mH instead of 400mH. Only standard distance results are shown.

The standard programme developed for 2014 places the event on Sunday afternoon.

Performances by guest athletes from outside the North Island are marked [IE]. Times known to be hand-timed are marked HT - records require electronic timing.
