Track-and-field is a sporting contest consisting of several running, throwing and jumping events. Events include the 100 meter dash, 400-meter dash, 400 meter hurdles, 4K run, long jump, shot-put, and the decathlon.

Track-and-field contests have been held at Starfleet Academy and other institutions of learning. They have also been held at major sports championships, including the Martian Olympics, the Olympic Games, and the Pan-African Games.

History[]

Collegiate athletes from the University of California, Los Angeles dominated the sport in the western United States up through the 2160s.

In 2289, Tuvok found running quite satisfying, particularly the measured cadence required for the 400 meter hurdles, and appreciated the symmetry of the running track. In his first year at Starfleet Academy, he beat a UCLA runner by a half step. (VOY novel: Pathways)

In 2333, Jean-Luc Picard claimed to be "rather decent" at track-and-field. He offered to assist Phigus Simenon with a long jump over a chasm, part of a team sports competition on Gnala. (STA novel: Progenitor)
