The adult games started with the stadion, the 184-metre (200-yard) sprint. (This was the most prestigious of all the events at Olympia: the winner gave his name to the Olympiad, the four-year dating system.) This was followed by the long distance race of twenty or twenty-four lengths of the track (3680 metres/4024 yards or 4416 metres/4829 yards). The third track event, the hippios, was a middle distance race of six lengths, a little over 1000 metres (1093 yards). It was probably called the hippios, horse race, because the distance was the same as that run by horses.
