The purpose of this study was to find out kinanthropometric profile of 20 Athletes of middle distance 800 meters, & long distance runners 5000 meters of Track Event of age 17 years were assessed for the present study. The data of athletes was collected at Athletics Summer Camp 2015 in Kashmir region. The athletes having participation of at least two years were selected for the current study. All subjects were assessed for height, weight, girths, diameters, and skin fold thickness. The data was analyzed by applying descriptive statistic i.e., mean, standard deviation & t-test to find out the significant differences of/in middle distance and Long distance runners. The long distance runners had taller than long distance runners for standing height, upper leg length, and lower leg length. The middle distance runners 800 significantly greater in weight, skin fold measurements (p<0.05). In Body girths and skeletal diameters no significant differences were found (p>0.05). It is concluded that in some of the parameters there were significant differences between middle distance & long distance runners Long distance runners athletes showed better kinanthropometric measurement.
