ⓘ 2000 metres

The 2000 metres or 2000-metre run is a track running event where five laps are completed around an outdoor 400 m track or ten laps around a 200 m indoor track. In distance covered, the outdoor event roughly equates to the mile run plus one additional lap.

The global governing body World Athletics recognises official world records for the distance, and it is also recorded in continental and national record settings. The mens world record his held by Moroccos Hicham El Guerrouj, who ran a time of 4:44.79 minutes in 1999, while the womens world record is held by Ethiopias Genzebe Dibaba who finished the distance in 5:23.75 minutes in 2017. The distance regularly features on event programmes of professional one-day track and field meetings, serving as a comparatively novel event with greater scope for record-breaking performances. It is also used at lower level competitions, such as school and youth tournaments.

Despite its world record status, it has never featured as a world championship level event indoors or outdoors. The event was briefly held at national level in the mid-1960s at the Spanish Indoor and Soviet Indoor Athletics Championships.
