Staggened start in track and field?

*Staggered start. On a 8 lane 400 m track a staggered start ensures that each athlete runs the same amount in the short distance events such as the 200 and 400 m dash. You will notice that the athletes on the outside lanes seem to start ahead, but their lane seems to finish later. In reality, every lane is the same length if you start and finish where its marked to. Meanwhile, for distance events, the staggered start on the one line is simply used to ensure that no one gets a head start and everyone starts at the same time when the gun goes off.
