**A distance of 100 meters is equivalent to 328 feet or 109 1/3 yards.** A football field is 100 yards long, so 100 meters is about as long as 1 1/10 football fields.

A mile is equivalent to 1,609 meters, so 100 meters constitutes about 6 percent of a mile. A person walking at a pace of 3 miles per hour, or 1 mile every 20 minutes, can cover 100 meters in about 1 1/4 minutes. A car moving at 60 miles per hour, or 1 mile every minute, takes about 3 3/4 seconds to cover 100 meters. One hundred meters represents 1/10 of a kilometer.
