Hurdlo racing is ono of the last games
which most athletes think of trying their hand
at in their endeavor to find one which they
are suited to. It is generally conceded by
habitues of athletic fields that the main causa
for this is because the hurdie3 or obstacles
which play an important part in the game
ire always found at one side of the track, and

lUSISG TO A HURDLE.
From an instantaneous photograph.
It is generally too much trouble for one man
to set them in place for use. This is not so
with other games, for an athlete is ready to
rim or walk as soon as he steps on the path.
Ho can also high jump with no trouble, for
the jumping uprights are usually in place.
Ho can try the running broad jump at
pleasure, for that requires no preparation of
apparatus. But before he can hurdle, poles
ranging between 18 aud 22 feet in length, 4
or 5 inches wide and an inoh thick have
to bo placed in uprights, and in tho case of
the 120 yard hurdle raca tho rulo calls for a
distance of 10 yards between the obstacles.
To fix these minor details takes time and
trouble, and although, of course, they are not
thought of by an enthusiast, they prevent
many from practicing the game who other
wise would, aud it has been found that ath
letic grounds with a regular course set aside
for the hurdles generally develop many more
men in this lino than arefound in clubs which
provide no especial place for practicing the
Hurdle running is considered by most spec
tators to be as pretty as any form of racing.
Tho combined running and leaping of the
athlotes, if done well, makes a most attract
ive aud graceful performance. The main
point of the game is ability to leap tne sucks
at full speed with as little interference with
the running stride as possible. The best ath
lotes at the game make the leap nothing but
a long stride, starting from one foot and
landing on theother, gauging the hurdleA'ery
close, and continuing in their running strido
as though they had taken no leap. The closer
ono can get to the hurdle tho better he will
be, providing he has averago speed on the
flat. It has been proved that an athlete does
not need to be an unusually fast runner to bo
a good hurdle racer, nor does he have to be
proficient in high or broad jumping. To
'run tho sticks" well ho must be scientific
snd thoroughly at homo with them.
The most popular hurdle races in America
aro what is called the old time regulation
race, 120 yards, ten flights S feet (i inches
high, and the ordinary race, 220 yards, ten
flights 2 feot 0 inches high. In England tho
former is practiced almost entirely, and that
is probably the reason the term "regulation"
is given it. The other, or what is called by
some the low hurdle race, is an American in
vention, and is called facetiously "the school
boy's raco," because the obstacles are so low
that no genuine hurdling is supposed to be
necessary to ba proficient at it. In this low
raco it is generally found that the fastest run
ners aro the best performers, provided they
be fairly skillful at hurdling. Tho distance
between the obstacles is so great that much
flat running is permitted, and tho sticks are
comparatively so low that an athlete does not
need to go very far off tho ground to clear
With the 120 yard race, ten flights 3 feet 6
inches high, it is quite different. Before ono
can o'ear an obstacle of that height he must
travel some distance in the air, although a
scientific hurdler will reduce tho time oft the
ground to tho minimum. A good sprinter or
running broad jumper in trying the 3 foot G
inch hurdles for the first timo will, if he en
deavors to go at any speed, clear between 15
and 17 feot beyond each hurdlo, whds an ex
pert hurdlo runner will not cover ovor 12 or

lae first illustration shows an athlete rising
to take a hurdle. It will be noticed that his i
left kneo is bent and that he is clearing tho
stick kne first. This is done so that he can
get closer to the stick, for if he wont over

equal ac tho lilgb hurdles and wTiO SCiVpres
ent amateur champion at the low ones, does
not clear the obstacles in tho way shown by
the first illustration. He takes them more
like a regular long stride with his foot first
nnd his legs very much extended. He is not
so scientific as Jordan, but ho can run 100
yards about 7 yards taster thau hi3 rival and
is also a better running broad jumper. He
makes up in force what he may lack in
science, although ho is by no ineaiii an un
scientific hurdler. Jordan in clearing the
high sticks covers about twelve feet in dis
tance; Copland about one foot more.
Although the styles of risteg tor a hurdls
vary so far as the position of the leading leg
is concerned, the method of Holding or trail
ing tho leg sprung from is alut the same in
all hurdlers. The trailing hg is generally
held back pretty straight, and tho knee is not
bent until it is over or has jtssed the stick.
The reason the knee is bent at all while the
athlete is in the air is that wllen he lauds the
trailing foot can ba put forward much
quicker, if half the morion of making a stride
has been made, than if tho athleto landed
with it still trailing in a straight position bo
hind. Very often when an athlete considers
himself far enough over the hurdlo to bend
his knee with safety the motion of bending
will lowor tjie knee somewhat aud it will
strike the hurdle. This sometimes throws
tho runner heavily, or twists him around,
making bun laud awkwardly and preventing
bis getting into his stride quicldy for the flat
part of tho race.
Tho second illustration shows an athlete di
rectly over the hurdle. Ho is altogether too
high to have his style called scientific. It will
be noticed that the same bend of the leading
knee is there as shown in tho first pioture, al
though in the second ono the athlete is so high
that it would not make much difference
whether ho pointed his foot or his knee first.
He has already bent tho knee of his trailing
leg, but it is way above the bar and one can
see that there is no danger of his coming in
contact with what he is clearing. Tho athlete
was familiar with a proper style of hurdling,
as can be seen by his general position, but ho
evidently had taken a hard run and a big leap
which sent him a great deal higher than was
Tho picture shows that he will land again
on his left foot, and probably will easily re
gain his stride for the flat running. Although
tho stylo shown would impress ono familiar
with the game as being most wasteful, still if
the athlete cleared the hurdle by even such
an unnecessary distance, it would look scien
tific if compared with the style novices gen
erally show. These would go even higher in

ning high or broad jump style. Both feet go
over together, and somo even go so far as to
land on both feet, which would stop all their
momentum, and they would have to com
meuco running again from almost a dead
stand. Unscientific and wasteful as the style
shown in the second picture is, it would be a
long time before a novice could even do as
The third picture shows how the average
novice clears a hurdlo. The probabilities are
that he has jumped from his right leg, and
any ono can see what little method there ij in
his style as compared with the jumper in tho
first illustration. Ho will land on two feat.
Novices, not being able to bend their leg3
in such a way as to clear the hurdle close,
and being afraid of strfimg the obstacle and
hurting themselves, generally make it a point
to get over it safely, no matter how tbey do
it, nor what the consequonces axe so far as
running is concerned, when they land on

can run more or less well, and the fact that
they must take the hurdle at full speed makes

trying the game.
The best way to learn hurdle racing is to
commence by practicing easily over the low
hurdles, or if 2 feet G inches is too high to
jump with confidence try something still
lower. Tho only trouble in jumping a low
hurdle is that little style is necessary to clear
it, aad it might be better to take a 2 foot 6
inch or higher obstacle and clear it slowly
for style, getting just enough momentum
from a short run to carry one's self over it.
After a while, if this is continued, tho athlete
will feel at home, and he can put a little
more speed in until ho gets up to the regula
tion S foot 6 inch raco and use throe strides
between the iiurdies, which will bring the
same foot to leap ftvm at each hurdle. The
high hurdles are pub 10 yards apart, which i3
considered a distance which ths majority of
athletes can take in three strides. If four
strides are used between them a different foot
will bo used at each hurdle, and five strides,
which would avoid a change of fest, aro too
many to be used for sneed.
The best record for the 120 yard 3 foot 0
Inch high race is 16 seconds, made in England
by several amateurs. Tho American record
is 16 1-5, by A. A. Jordan. This length of
raca and same number of hurdles, each one
foot, lower, has been done in 14 3-5 seconds by
A. F. Copland. The 2-20 yard 2 foot G inch
high race record is 20 2-5 seconds, by A. F.
Copland and Herbert ITapes. Copland holds

record of 37 3-5 seconds, and L. E. Myers, tho

reclining chair cars between AVichita and
St. Louis, also between Kansas City and
