staggered starting positions.
The start for the 800m is a staggered start with lane 1 starting at the common finish line.
The track length is longer for the outer lanes. The starting blocks are staggered so that each runner has an equal distance to the finish line. They have to remain in their respective lanes because of the position where they started, to make it fair to all runners.
the different lanes positions in the oval have a different circumference relative to the distance from the center of the circle, so the stagger makes up for the length differential.
Lane 1: 400 meters ... Lane 8: 454.9 meters On Olympic tracks have staggered starting lines to adjust for this in 400m races so each runner has the same length to run.
There are a few ways to space runners on a track. You could have a staggered start where there is one runner per lane and they each start a but higher then the next (due to which lane they are in). They could also all start on the waterfall (the curved start line).
The do all start on a straight line if the track does not go round a bend. However when the track is circular and runners are running in lanes, the outside lane is longer than the inside lane. The lane starting position is therefore staggered so that each runner in each lane actually ends up running the same distance.
track runner. Usain Bolt should be the most striking example
Wesley Paul is the fastest boy runner
No, that's why races run in lanes around bends are staggered.
