4x400m Records

The 4x400m relay has been contested in the Olympics since 1912 for men and 1972 for women.

The first 500m of the relay distance is usually run within lanes, after which runners break to the inside. Handovers after this take place across the track with the positions of the incoming runners at the start of the final straight determining the standing order from the rail.

For relays, the youngest member of the relay team determines the age group of the team.

Where Centre records are better performances than National or World records, this likely indicates that the athlete either failed to apply for the record within the application window or was unable to meet the stricter paperwork requirements. More recent records could still be in the processing stage at World or National level.

Electronic times are required. Some historical times that predate this requirement may be hand-times (h). Where it is not readily evident that a historical hand timed record or electronic time is faster, both will be listed. [I believe any time given with a single decimal is hand timed but unless marked it is not explicitly expressed.]

Note: Athletes move. Wellington records applicable to athletes registered to Wellington at time of performance. Island championship records applicable to athletes registered to that island at time of performance. NZ records applicable to athletes registered appropriately to NZMA at time of performance. Oceania championship records applicable to athletes registered to OMA at time of performance. World records quote national affiliation of athlete at time of performance.
