In track, a rabbit is a sacrificial runner in a medium- to long distance race that jumps out to an early lead, but subsequently tires and fades away. The purpose of a rabbit is to pace another runner (usually a teammate) so that that other runner runs a more technically sound race (i.e. starts too fast or finishes too slow.)
