200m running track

Hello Every one, hope you are all well!

Does anyone have any suggestions and measurements for the setting out of a 200m running track for sports day??

Re: 200m running track

Firstly it depends on the shape of your field, but 50m straights, and 50m bends would give you what you want.

15.92m radius will give you a 50m bend.

You will need need a space 82m long and 32m wide, plus space for each additional lane.

Re: 200m running track

It looks like the straights get shortened and the bends lengthened. I guess that makes some sense.
