    Re: how far

    The science geeks who pop up on this board every time somebody wants a simple answer will undoubtedly be along to deluge you soon with corrections to my response, but for the short kind of sprints you're talking about, simply think of a metre as the same thing as a yard.

    (50 metres is almost 55 yards, but for a 7-year old, who's to know?)

      There are 3.28084 feet per meter so

      3.28084 * 25 = 82.02 ft (27+ yards)
      3.28084 * 50 = 164.04 ft (54+ yards)
