No, the inside lane is shorter, the farther you go out, the longer the lanes become.

Standard track lanes are 1.22m wide; therefore the following lengths apply for one lap of each lane:

1 400m (inside)

2 407.67m

3 415.33m

4 423m

5 430.66m

6 433.38m

7 446m

8 453.66m (outside)

An average track is 400m. With the outside lanes, and assuming it is 8 lanes, the extra distance would be 50m. Therefore being 450m long.

The difference depends on the length of the turns as well as the width of the lanes. A track with 42 inch lanes will be different than a track with 36 in lanes. Also a track with 110 meter turns and 90 meter straights will be different than one with 100 meter turns and straights.

On a typical track, which is a training, high school, and a college track there are 8 lanes. However, on an olympic or professional track there are 9 lanes.

Assuming that we are dealing with a standard track, where the lanes are 42 in. wide and there is no curb on the inside of lane 1, then the answer is 0.257 miles or 413 meters.
