Short or Tall?

What are the hurdle events? In high school track and field, they are the 100m high hurdles for girls, the 110m high hurdles for boys, and most often the 300m intermediate hurdles for both boys and girls (some high schools run the 400m hurdles).

In college, the high hurdle races are the same, though the height of the 110m hurdles for men is higher than it was in high school. The intermediate hurdles change to the 400m hurdles, the men's hurdler are again three inches higher, with ten hurdles over the course of the race. In indoor track there are no intermediate-height hurdle races, and the high hurdle races are either 55m or 60m, run on a straightaway.
