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.

Assuming that we are dealing with a standard track, where the lanes are 42 in. wide and there is no curb on the inside of lane 1, then the answer is 0.257 miles or 413 meters.

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

You run half the track. A full lap is 440 yards. Lane 5 Athletics.

6 laps

Its is 4 times around the track for outside track! THANKS HOPE THAT I HELP!!

It is when your foot comes out of the lane's lines when sprinting. For long-distance running, which I did, as long as you stay within the extremities of all of the lanes, you are good.

They are the boundaries between each lane. In some meets, you will be disqualified if you run on the line more than 3 consecutive times.

Basically, the 400 meter dash is one race around the track. Everyone is assigned a lane at the starting line, and after the pistol goes off, they must stay in their lane and run all the way around the track approximetely once.
