Tip of the Week

What is ultimate track and field challenge? Combine all of the skills and training needed for each event and try the decathlon or the heptathlon. You'll need endurance to compete for several hours each day and in ten or seven events in a row. You'll need to be a jumper, a sprinter, a hurdler, a thrower, fast, in shape, strong, and above all, mentally tough.

The events in the decathlon are the 100m, long jump, shot put, pole vault, 400m, then on the second day, 110m hurdles, javelin, high jump, discus, 1000m. For the women, the heptathlon consists of the 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200m, then for day 2, the long jump, javelin, and 800m. These events are the marathon of track and field.
