The 200 and 400 meter races are two track and field events that can be considered sprints.

Those running events considered to be "middle distance" events include the 800 and 1,600 (1 mile) races.  There are also two "relay" events, which feature four runners each running one leg of the race. Each runner passes a baton to the next to signify the transition from one leg to another. The two most common relays are the 4x100 - 400 meters total, each athlete runs 100 meters - and the 4x200 or 800 meters total.

Within the field events in track and field, there are also two main categories: throwing and jumping. The two throwing events are discus and shot put.  Discus involves the longest throw, as it uses a disc. The shot put is a heavy ball, so this event involves shorter throws.

There are also a jumping event in track and field, the long jump. The long jump requires athletes to jump far. In the long jump, the athlete takes a long running start before jumping as far as he or she can into a pit of sand.
