30m to 250m time Predictions

Based on time for one of the following distances - 30m to 100m, 120m, 150m, 200m or 250m - it is possible to predict a time (not a guaranteed time) for the other distances. The algorithms used in this prediction process are based on Dick (1987)[1].

Predictions based on a given distance and time

Select the distance, enter the athlete's time for that distance and then select the calculate button to obtain predicted times for the other distances.

 Distance - 30m 40m 50m 60m 70m 80m 90m 100m 120m 150m 200m 250m Time - seconds 30 metres seconds 90 metres seconds 40 metres seconds 100 metres seconds 50 metres seconds 120 metres seconds 60 metres seconds 150 metres seconds 70 metres seconds 200 metres seconds 80 metres seconds 250 metres seconds

Calculations are based on Dick (1987)[1] table of controls for 100/200m/400m athletes.

The 100m and 200m are electronic timings, the other times are hand timings. You can add 0.25 - 0.30 second onto hand timings to get a predicted electronic time.

If "Error" is displayed, then the entered time for the selected distance is outside the range of the algorithms used in the prediction process. The algorithms are based on an athlete running 100 metres in 10 to 15 seconds.
