In a track and field competition, there are generally three different sprint distances: 100m, 200m, and 400m.

A Long distance race is any running event on the track that is longer than 3000m. This includes such events as the 3000m run, the 3000m steeplechase, the 3200m run, the two-mile run, the three-mile run, the 5000m run, the five-mile run, the mile run, and 10000 m run, and so on.

In Sports, there are three main long distance races: the 3000m, the 5000m, and the 10,000m races. These races are similar to the middle distance races, but the emphasis is even more on correct pacing and endurance.

Long distance races are the races that are usually run over a long distance at slow but calculated speed. They are endurance races. No specific lane is allocated to a particular. Runners are allowed to change their lanes, but not overtake other runners from the right side of the lane.

Examples of long distance races are;

  1. 800m
  2. 1500m
  3. 5000m
  4. Marathon

In summary, in Long Distance Races, standing is considered as a needed skill. Standing is usually adopted when starting any of the long distance races. The standing start involves a slight bending forward of the body, with the arm in a ready position of take off.
