The purpose of the present investigation was to compare the physical variables among different distance runners (short distance, middle distance and long distance runners). For this study total thirty (30)male subjects; ten of each distance were randomly selected from Institute of Professional Studies, College of Physical Education, Gwalior (M.P.). The age of all subjects ranged between 20-30 years. The data was collect for each variable administering their respective tests. To ensure that the data was reliable, each subject was given sufficient time to perform the tests for each variable.
