8.1.1.2 Tracks and Lanes

The infield straight track should have a minimum of 6 but preferably 8 or more

lanes separated and bounded on both sides by white lines 0.05m wide. The lanes shall

all be 1.22m ± 0.01m wide including the lane line on the right.

The oval track should have a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 lanes. The

nominal width of the lanes shall be between 0.90m and 1.10m including the lane line

on the right. All lanes shall be of the same width with a tolerance of ± 0.01m to the

selected nominal width.

In most of the shooting ranges I've been to, the lanes about are 4 feet wide.

The difference depends on the length of the turns as well as the width of the lanes. A track with 42 inch lanes will be different than a track with 36 in lanes. Also a track with 110 meter turns and 90 meter straights will be different than one with 100 meter turns and straights.

### How far around a running track in lane 2?

### How do you make a stagger?

To find the stagger of a running track you must first have the lane width, if you don't then find it, and after you get the lane width which is approximately 1.22m meters you multiply it by 2 then by Pi, if you don't know what Pi is it's appro. 3.14 or 22 divided 7, so if the lane width was 1.22 i use the formula, (2 x Pi x lane width), 2 multiplied by 1.22 is 2.44 and then multiplied by Pi (3.14) you get 7.66, so each lane is 7.66 Meters ahead of the other :) HOPE THIS HELPED!

### A running track has parallel sides and semicircular ends Each lane is 1 meter wide How much of a head start should the runner in the outside lane receive over the one in the second lane from outside?

The distance gap between each lane is equal to the circumference of the semicircle at the end of the track plus the width of the lane. Assuming each lane has the same width, the runner in the outside lane should receive a head start equivalent to the circumference of one semicircular end plus the width of one lane.

### How long is each lane in a standard Olympic sized track?

From the staggered start, it is 400 meters around. The stagger is calculated by subtracting the extra distance one goes around a wider diameter. For each lane it is double the lane width (which in the Olympics is 1.22m) times pi. for each additional lane.
