The answer is: 4.02336 laps, i.e. 4 laps plus 9.344 meters (30.66 feet).

1 lap around a standard Olympic oval track is 400 meters.

1 mile = 5280 feet = 1609.344 meters

1609.344 meters/400 meters = 4.02336 laps

So if you've been running exactly 4 laps on an Olympic (i.e. 400-meter) track thinking it was your definitive 1-mile time, your real 1-mile time is actually a little longer, but just a couple of seconds longer.

At an 8-minute mile pace (11 ft/sec), that extra 30.66 feet takes another 2.787 seconds to run.

But older/traditional US and U.K. tracks are not Olympic tracks--they are 440 yards per lap, which is exactly 4 laps per mile.
