    Greg,

    Goto this site to learn how far you are running in each lane:

    greg, A rule of thumb according to T&FN's Big Green Book is: Multiply the additional distance from the curb by 3 to obtain the extra distance run on each curve. Example 3 foot from the curb will cost 9 foot for 200, 18 foot for 400, etc. An average lane on a track is 42" (3.5 feet) wide. Hope this helps!

    thanks to the ones trying to help. and since one moron is too stupid to just answer my question, my HS track wants people to run on the other lanes - it's not my choice. thanks for nothing, idiot!

    More than a mile. If knowing how far you run really matters that much, then run in lane one.

    And you'd guess wrong. Lane 1 is measured 30cm out from the curb.

    The answer to the original question depends upon the width of the lanes.

    If you look at the track you can see how much extra distance each lane adds by looking at the 400M start marks. I would guess that the exact 400M distance should be measured at the curb in lane 1.

    track measurements?

    does anyone know where the measurements are taken on a track? what i mean by that is, is 1 mile 4 laps on lane #1? i usually run at my high school track, but i run on one of the 3 outside lanes (#6-8). i was just wondering what the distance is for, say 4 laps on lane #7? i have tried looking this up and have had no luck. any info would be appreciated! thanks!
