What is the distance in the team pursuit in speed skating?

In speed skating, you do what called a relay. One person is skating on the track at a time, and when they finish a pre-determined number of laps, a team mate comes out onto the track in front of the skater, and the skater that is finishing his laps, pushes the new skater. That skater then goes and skates his laps and so on. There are different distances of relays. Yourger skaters might skate a 1500m relay. Teenagers might do a 3km relay. And when you get into distance relays in long track, you could do a marathon relay (42km).
