Short Hurdles Records

The distance of the short hurdle sprint race varies from 80m to 110m, depending on age and gender. The height of the hurdle and the distance between hurdles also varies.

The 110m hurdles have been in the Olympics since 1896 and the 100m hurdles for women since 1972.

Women start with 100m, a hurdle height of 0.84m and 8.5m between hurdles. From aged 40, the women race 80m. The hurdle height is dropped to 0.762m at age 40 and then to 0.686m at age 60. The gap between hurdles is reduced to 8m at age 40 and 7m from age 50.

Men start with 110m, a hurdle height of 0.991m and 9.14m between hurdles. From aged 50, the distance is reduced to 100m and then again to 80m from age 70. The hurdle height is dropped to 0.914m at age 50, 0.84m at age 60, 0.762m at age 70 and then to 0.686m at age 80. The gap between hurdles is reduced to 8.5m at age 50, 8m at age 60 and 7m from age 70.

At the World Masters Indoor Champs, there is a short hurdles variant where every age group runs 60m.

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

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.
