Best Track and Field Events

The Top Ten
1 800m

The last 200 meters of the 800 is the neuromuscular equivalent to driving nails into your hamstrings. It is the pinnacle of combined speed and endurance.

If You go out there and sprint 800m, That has to be the most painful run that requires so much skill and experience.

Easily the most difficult, I get the most hyped up for this one and it is nice to say I run the 800.

Tactical yet super quick. One of the most painful events if run properly

2 400m Dash

It's probably the most well-rounded event in track, because if you focus to much on speed or long distance, your not gonna place. It also puts athletes in agonizing pain.

Such a tough event it feels as if you are being stabbed in the stomach and legs while trying to sprint. Very difficult and a mix of speed and endurance.

I did this in all the track meets and I did ok. Not my fave event though

Takes a lot of heart on that home stretch.

3 100m Sprint

I did Track and Cross Country, and I just find that having a balance between distance running AND very short distance is great for developing both skills alike, speed and distance. The 100m sprint is by far one of the hardest events. You have to be running full speed pretty much throughout the whole thing, without dying out, because if you die out it means you slow down and if you slow down then there's a likely chance of you getting passed and not placing highly, say 1st or 2nd. And it's helped me with Cross Country because at the end of an XC there's that chute, yeah well that's where it gets really competitive against the other athletes and despite you being dead from running three miles you need to gain back some energy quickly and sprint through that chute. And this past year of sprinting in Track will surely come in handy for my upcoming XC season. But the 100m is a very difficult event (I'm not a beginner either)

It's the one of the harder events beside the distance running. Most people think running 100m is easy. Well think again, because when you get on the track and see the people your running against they are vicious and ready to win. So you have 5 other people your against and we all want to place first. So no one slows down, we all sprint to our death.

This event is filled with beginners that think they are fast but aren't

4 Long Jump

The Long Jump is a fun event during a track meet or competition. It is a unique way to compete and it is very different from other events. I love the long jump!

5 Triple Jump

This event is one of the most physically taxing and most technique-specific events in all of track and field. It needs acceleration, speed, jumping ability and balance, it is the perfect event.

Triple jump is very fascinating to watch, as it requires very good form and precise movement. Simply amazing.

6 200m Sprint

This race gives you more time to really push and go your fastest.

Like the 100 but harder

7 Pole Vault

Pole Vault by far is the most thrilling event there is. The speed, complexity and degree of danger by far rank it above all.

Insanely hard. The sprint of a 100 runner, the strength of shotput, and the agility of a gymnast? Should definitely be up near the top.

Pole Vault is the best.

8 1600m

Most people ask how fast you can run a mile when they ask how fast you are, so this makes sure your fast. plus noting is better than ditance

The best event ever

9 High Jump

It requires great acceleration, jumping ability, and technique. It doesn't get much better than jumping over a bar well over your head.

"It is the best event you can do it is fun when you have the technique down and you can jump over the bar that is over you head and make it.

Hi jump is so fun if you know what your doing. It's cool to see the Physics that go in why people can jump the way they can over a bar.

You show of your hops and it feels like you're fling in the air.

10 3200m

Some Athletes can hold an incredible pace in the 3200 and watching them lap others is awesome

The Contenders
11 4x400m Relay

By far the most fun event to watch and run in my opinion. Usually the last event, extremely fast, and filled with the adrenaline from the cheering of all teams.

12 110m Hurdles

I personally love the 110 and all hurdles because it adds more technique to the race than a normal race. Going over the hurdles feels so nice, especially once it gets to the point where you don't really have to think about it

Watching runners fly over the hurdles efficiently is really cool

13 Marathon
14 Javelin Throw
15 4x100m Relay

I do this relay too, but the people I do it with are so lazy. But I always finish off and catch up to be second or first. So I love this event too.

This should be in the top 5. It's so fun and great for begginers and profesinail people

16 Discus

I find the facial expressions and the grunts rather amusing.

17 Vertical Jump
18 Shot Put
19 Hammer Throw
20 100m Hurdles
21 400m Hurdles
22 80m hurdles

It is very fun doing hurdles. And the 80m hurdles are the best because for beginners is isn't too far but is still a sprint unlike the 400m hurdles.

Awesome for kids

23 50m Sprint
24 55m Hurdles
25 70m Dash
