sdfs

The race that is run above 1500 meters in called long distance running. There should be good blood circulation, respiration and development of muscles in order to run for long distance.

Long distance running involves 3000 meter, 5000 meter, 10000 meter and 42.195 km (marathon race). There need to be continuous training and exercise to participate in long distance running.

Relay Race

In a way, we have played relay races as secondary games but the relay races in athletics are somewhat different from those games. In this relay, there should be a team of 4 runners only and four of them have to run and complete the determined distance. Mainly 4*100 meters relay are under the relay races. One teammate passes the baton to another teammate to run.

This way once the baton in received from the first teammate, the second teammate completes running his determined distance to pass the baton to the third teammate; the third teammate again does the same as the second one and passes the baton to the fourth runner. The fourth runner runs and completes the running to the finish line.Whichever group’s fourth runner completes first at the finish line will be the winning team. This is an interesting team event run by more than the group of four runners. This is the reason the relay events are conducted only at the end of the program.
