60 metres is a sprint event in track and field athletics. It is a championship event for indoor championships, normally dominated by the best outdoor 100 metres runners. At outdoor venues it is a rare distance, at least for senior athletes. The 60 metres was an Olympic event in the 1900 and 1904 Summer Games but was removed from the schedule thereafter.

In the past, it was common for athletes to compete in the 60 yards race. This is not part of the lineage of the 60 metres, but is the predecessor of the 55 metres race.
