Yes, everyone has the same length to run in the 400m dash. The track is staggered so that everyone runs the same length. It might seem like the person on the outside lane is running more because they have a bigger turn, but they have a lead in the beginning because of the stagger.

The stagger in the 400 meter dash are the different starting points around the first curve that each runner lines up on. Because the track is oval, having everyone start at the same line would be unfair to those running in the lanes outside of lane 1. Basically, the further out you would start, the further you would have to run. for example, By having the starting point for each lane start futher up ,or staggered, around the first turn ensures that all the runners are running the same distance.
