  • 1600 & 3200

    Anyone know what was the exact year the high school rulebook changed the middle distance events from the mile & 2 Mile to the 1600 & 3200 meters? I know it was after 1976 and it had to be late 1970's or early 1980's.

      Florida HS's didn't switch over until 1990.

        I know some states have had the sense to resist it, but when did the national rulebook change over?

          High School rule book changes from yards to meters with the 1990 edition.

            I believe Massachusetts still does Mile/2 Mile, but metric from 800 down. Outdoor state meet 2 mile record is still Salazar's (9:00ish), I believe.
