# How do you convert a 40 meter time into a 40 yard time?

1 meter = 1.0936133 yards 40 meters x 1.0936133 = 43.744 yards

So 40 meters is roughly 43.7 yards

Say you ran a 5.10 40 meter sprint then you would do this:

40/43.7 = .9153

.9153 x 5.10 = 4.66

So by running a 5.10 40 meter you ran about a 4.66 40 yard dash

There is a fundamental flaw in this. The start and the first thirty meters should not be included in the percentage because that is slower. The last 10 meter segment should be the only part adjusted. Using the seven fastest 100m sprinters over the past twenty years, their 30-40 meter segment is 18.76% of their overall 40 meter split. So the 18.76% of a 5.10 meter time would be .957.

The extra 3.744 yards = 3.4235136 meters

10m- 3.4235136m = 6.5764864m

As it is in value of ten, it is an easy conversion to 65.764864%

0.65764864 x .957sec = 0.62936974848 sec

5.10 seconds - .957 seconds = 4.143 seconds

4.143sec + 0.62936974848 sec = 4.77 seconds

50 yards = 45.72 metres.

So to convert 50 yards time to 50 metres, multiply the 50 yd time by 50/45.72 or by 1.0936

(55m time / 1.09361) * .7272
