Numbers of players during the sport

The length of the game
The length of the game is determined by how many heats or events there are and how long they take. A normal track meet takes on average 2 to 6 hours.

The points are given after the runner, thrower, or jumper has finished and is then evaluated based on his/her time, or distance.
Field dimensions for track
An outdoor track measures 400 metres/meters around with a field (grass) on the inside. a track will have eight lanes. Six and nine lane tracks are also common, while two and four lane tracks are occasionally made.
Strategies of the game
In track, runners pace to evenly distribute their energy to last longer in the heat. There are different ways to pace yourself. There is the even-split where the runner speeds up in one part of the lap. The positive-split is when the runner runs the first laps faster than the last laps. The negative-split is a common strategy in which the runner goes slow the first few laps and then speeds up on the last few laps. The last method is the sit-and-kick method. The runner sits in the middle of the runners and waits for the final lap and sprints in a short burst.
The most critical foul is a false start. Another foul is skipping or hitting a hurdle. The penalty for both is disqualification.
In track, all of the following are used as track equipment. Starting blocks, hurdles, discuses javelins, and shotputs. The equipment is only used for the type of event.
Track and Field leagues
There are a few different leagues for track. There are the school leagues which are sorted by grade and/or age and there is college and the Olympics.
Changes since the origin
A change in equipment has been made. Now the javelins have to be made of a suitable material with the point metal or rubber. The field size didn't change but the severity of some rules were changed. false starts, hitting hurdles, and wearing unapproved shoes lead to disqualification. Also if you have 11 or more spikes you could get penalized and the severity depends on the number or material.
