Maybe accept "k" as an abbreviation for kilometres the way you accept "m" as an abbreviation for metres.

But kilometers is km, not just k.

Yes, but in racing, it's common to refer to something as a '5k' or '20k.'

The k doesnt actually stand for kilometres, but for 1000. It is used for money aswell (or basicly anything that can be counted). I understand the confusion, since it becomes 1k (1000) meters and it is actually where the k in km stands for.

Tried "100 metre relay", "100 metres relay", ditto with "meter", "100 relay", then gave up on that answer! Some type-ins there, maybe?

Agreed. I tried "1600 metres relay" (which, for those non-math wizards out there, is 4 x 400) and 400 metres relay (4 x 100) to no avail.

400 meter relay will now work for 4x100 relay, and 1600 meter relay for 4x400.

Think someone mentioned it above, but surely u can accept "100m relay" or "100 metre/meter relay"...it's very clear what we're trying to say, the "4X" part isn't necessary

Every race at the stadium is in metres, road races are in km. It´s not the same 10.000m than 10km.

There is no 50km walk for women, so should have blue mark against it.

Tried "hop, step, & jump" for triple jump. Believe this is acceptable alternate title.

No it is actually another name for it (unless you knew that already and made a joke, but you seemed genuinely em not really sure what to call the emotion/behaviour (especially in english) baffled by the suggestion perhaps)

I think "boing, boing, BOING!!!" should be acceptable.

Didn't accept 110 hurdles for 110 metre hurdles. Think we can allow that?

There is no 1600 m, 3200 m, 3000 m, mile or 2 mile? I was surprised. I tried them all.
