50 Metres Hurdles

 

50 Metres Hurdles

50 metres hurdles is a distance in hurdling, usually only run in indoor competitions. Because very few contests are held over the distance, most of the fastest times recorded for the event were set during specially measured and timed races over longer distances, typically the 55 metres hurdles or 60 metres hurdles.

Top ten all-time

Note: Indoor results only.

  • + = Timed recorded by athlete en route to a longer distance
