It depends on how long the track is, but on the normal 400M track, it takes a little more than four laps to make a mile (1609.344M), in lane 1.

If you use the line marked 400M in each lane, then you will also run 400M in that lane, but once you go past the common start/finish line, you are going more than 400M per lap.

The distance covered will be different depending upon whether the outside lane is the 4th lane (some practice and MS tracks), the 6th lane (some small HS tracks), the 8th lane (most HS, college and international tracks) or the 9th lane (some elite college and Olympic level international tracks).

Begin in lane one, then lane 2, 3, etc. through lane 8, for a convenient way to keep track of how many laps you've run.If the width of the lanes is 1.27 m (50 inches), and you run around the track once in each lane you will have run400 + 408.99 + 415.959 + 423.939 + 431.918 + 439.898 + 447.878 + 455.857 = 3424.4 metres. Each lane is about 8 m longer than the previous one.Suggestion: switch lanes at a consistant position on a straight section of track.Read more: How_far_is_it_if_you_do_lane_1_through_8_on_a_track

Are the lanes in an outdoor oval track the same distance around?

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)
