  • The 100 metres hurdles, or 100-meter hurdles, is a track and field event run mainly by women. For the race ten hurdles of a height of 83.8 centimetres are placed evenly spaced along a straight course of 100 metres. They are positioned so that they will fall over if bumped into by the runner, but weighted so it is disadvantageous. Fallen hurdles don't count against runners so long as they don't run into them on purpose. Like the 100 metres sprint the 100 m hurdles begins with athletes in starting blocks.
