60m Hurdles Records

The 60m hurdles is a race only contested indoors. It has been run in every IAAF World Indoor Championships and every World Masters Indoor Championships.

There are five hurdles. The height for men starts at 99.1cm. It is reduced to 91.4cm at age 50, to 84cm at age 60, 76.2cm at 70 and 68.6cm for 80+. Women start at a hurdle height of 84cm, which is reduced to 76.2cm at age 40, then 68.6cm for 60+.

It is not a record category maintained at the Centre level, having been added to the New Zealand record lists only recently.

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.

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.
