400m every lane is the same distance.

Yes, the above is true in a 400 metre race!

However, if you are training or running for fitness or pleasure on a track, signs often tell you not to run on the inside lane, and you may wonder like I have what the distance is around various lanes.

See the answer in this website to: "What is the length of each lane on a running track?"

The line around which you run in lane #6 is approximately 440 meters long (439.898 meters long, to be mathematically more precise).

The first two sentences are only true if you are using a staggered start and only measuring from the starting point in each lane to the common finish line,

What should be the lead distance of a person running in a curved outer track than the inner one?

It depends on many things, from track size to difference in starting lane and the event. for example in the 800m run the racers can break to lane one after either 100m or after 300m. usually the 100m lead differential between say lane 3 to lane 4 is about 4 meters, lane 5 would be 8, 6 would be 12...etc.

How long is one lap in the 6th lane on a 400-meter track?

400 meters. The track is designed so that no mater what lane you are in, the distance is equal as long as lane 6 starts ahead of 5-1. There are starting markers on the track that will say 400m, 200m, ect. and that is how you know where to start. The starting points are scattered because of the potion of your lane, if you are in lane 1, you will be starting in the back. If you are in lane 8, you will be in front. The only time you are not staggered is if you are on a straight path such as a 100m or 50m.

What is the distance in lane 6 for a 300m track?

On a track are all the lanes the same distance?

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)

How many miles in an oval outdoor field track in lane 2?

Standard outdoor tracks are 400 meters in length in the first lane which roughly equals 1/4 mile (actually .2485 mile). Distance in the other lanes depends on the length of the turns and the width of the lanes which varies between facilities. Some tracks have been fit into narrow spaces and thus have very short, tight turns and long straights. Similarly lane width plays a roll. The 400m distance is measured along the inside line of lane one so the distance around the second lane should be measured around the inside line of lane 2 (i.e. the outside line of lane 1). If each lane is 2.5 feet wide the distance around lane 2 will be different than if each lane is 3 feet wide. Generally the additional distance added by moving out one lane is between 4 and 6 meters. So lane 2 would be around 406m, lane 3 around 412m, etc. 1m = .0006 mile so you can do the math to figure out the distance of each lane in miles. One way to figure out how many meters each lane adds on the track you're on is to measure the distance between 400m start lines. In lane 1 there is the large Start/Finish line usually stretching across all lanes. In lane 2, a few meters ahead you should find another line (usually a thinner and a different color) with a marking indicating "400." The distance between the general start in lane 1 and the start in lane 2 is equal to the distance lane 2 adds to a full lap. You'll find the same line in each lane at equal distance. These are the lines used to start a 400m race. Each runner must stay in his/her assigned lane for the whole lap so the staggered start lines ensure each runs exactly 400m when the cross the common finish.

What are the lane advantages in track?

All lanes are equal. You still run the same amount of meters. However, lane one you have to catch up a bit. Lane two is kinda alright. Lanes 3 and 4 are the best. Lane 5 is a focus lane. Lane 6 is an apprehensive lane. Lanes 7 and 8 are lanes where you will have to maintain your speed or pick it up in order to win.
