Does anybody know when the track was converted from the 440-yard format to the 400-meter style. Also about what time did they start putting in all weather track as opposed to the rubberized asphalt. They are resurfising the old track at my school and I want to add a some history to it.
Um... well, where should we start. It depends what part of the country and world you are talking about ... and what level.
My HS track was one of the first HS tracks in the country redone to 400m and that was in 1979 ... I know there were some collegiate metric tracks then, but not a ton.
