Why do we use meters for all events except the mile and two mile? What in the world is a 1600 or 3200 meter race? Why do most states still run 300 meter hurdles and Massachusetts 400? I like the mile/2mile for historical purposes and not the 1600/3200. If we want to use meters for our two longest races why isn't it 1500 meters and 3000 or 5000 meters?
