Girls will run 30" hurdles and boys will run 33" hurdles in both the 100H and 200H events. At the championship meet we will set the hurdle weights to the appropriate hurdle height.
The 100 hurdles are set on the standard high school girl marks for both junior high girls and boys events. In the 100 hurdles, there are 10 hurdles, 13 meters (42'8") to the first hurdle, 8.5 meters (27'10.25") between hurdles and 10.5 meters (34' 5.5") from the last hurdle to the finish line.
In the 200 hurdle event, there are 5 hurdles, 45 meters (147'7.5") to the first hurdle, 35 meters (114'10") between hurdles and 15 meters (49'2.5) to the finish line. The differences between the 195 meter hurdles and the 200 meter hurdle race run at the Nebraska Championship Meet is that after the last hurdle in the 200 meter race, there are 5 more meters to the finish line then in the 195 meter hurdle race.
