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.

Due to the curved/circular path of the track, the diameter is longer with each lane that moves outwards. Runners start at intervals for the 400 meter dash so that all runners end up running 400 meters in the end and not more or less.

You do switch lanes in the 400 meter dash. At my school at the 50 meter mark is when you start to move into lane one and two and by the 100 meter mark you really should be in the lane one or you will be running longer.
