I have watched some of the Japanese High School Championships and have noticed many runners have some kind of head band tied around their head. What is that? Doe it have some kind of meaning?

They are called hachimaki. They're symbolic of focus and determination. You see them outside of sports as well, but in athletics at least they're not worn much after high school.
