middle distance running - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

Middle-distance running events are track races longer than sprints, up to 3000 metres. The standard middle distances are the 800 metres, 1500 metres and mile run, although the 3000 metres may also be classified as a middle-distance event. The 1500 m came about as a result of running three and 3/4 laps of a 400 m outdoor track or 7 and a half laps of a 200m indoor track, which were commonplace in continental Europe in the 20th century.
