 Lateral Running
Lateral Running
One of the most exciting new track events will be lateral running. Seldom seen outside athletics or football training circles, lateral or sideways running surprises the first-time spectator with its combination of speed and grace. The rhythmical action, which calls for a high level of flexibility and coordination, is one of the most attractive and exciting to watch, and this, coupled with its dramatic step-overs and bold shoulder level arm extensions, sees it often described as running ballet.

Track-ball is similar to basketball or netball except that it is played on a standard 400m athletic track and there are no goals. In order to score, players must advance the ball by passing it to each other round the track, until the ball crosses the opposing team's scoring line from a designated score shooting area. Players may only take two steps with the ball before passing it, and must stay within their assigned lane.
