Are there really tracks that are slower and faster?

How does that work. How can a certain track be fast and another be slow.

    not all track surfaces are created equal. So it depends. Look for example the ease and speed runners achieve on the hard smooth surface of indoor field house tracks compared to outdoor track where a surface may seem hard and smooth but offers a lot more cushion to each step in your running stride. So it is the firmer the surface the easier is the ability to run a faster time.

    Do you mean the running track? If so do you mean one being a shorter distance than the other?
