How far is each lap on a typical HS 400 meter track if you are running in lane 6? a friend did a workout in lane 6 and I am trying to figure out how they ran. They ran 22 laps in lane 6 due to soccer game going on. Approximates welcome if no one know exact.

.27 according to gmappedometer.com

400 meters + the distance (in lane 6) from the finish line to the 400 meter start line.

yes and what is that distance?

He's saying you need to measure, the length of the turn and width of lanes varies track to track, you'll probably be more accurate than letsrun if you just go to the track, stride 100m, split, stride in lane 6 from the start to the 400m start, split again, divide the second time by the first time and multiply by 100m. This will get you the extra distance. Or just pace assuming each long step is about a yard, or each short step is about a foot. 
pfft 
 
The width of lanes is variable from track to track, I think the average addition by lane is like 7 meters, but that might be complete BS. 
oh yawn 
 
1 lap in lane 6 is just that, 1 lap.

It's 400 in lane 1, about 406.28 in lane 2, 412.56 in lane 3, 418.84 in lane 4, 425.12 in lane 5, and about 431.40 in lane 6. That's assuming each lane is one meter wide. 22 laps of that would be 22x431.4.

Hey look, I already GPSed it on gmappedometer.com in lane 6 of a high school track and it came to .27 miles/lap. Neat!

Those are the nominal distances. The actual distances will be 1.25m(1) per lap less than those numbers. (1) 0.20*2*(pi)*R

Some quality posting like always The op said approximates are fine. Plus, they did a "workout" that was 22 laps?

5.93 miles.

that is what I use too, small world this internet. 
and the answer is 
 
437.7 meters

look at the 400m stagger and measure from finish line to stagger and add it on to 400m

Ever heard of a steady state run? Ever heard of a tempo run? Ever heard of intervals? Ever heard of fartlek?

'yes and what is that distance?[/quote]' If you are that interested why don't you measure it? 
deanouk 
 
Yes, my book with the extra distance run gives the same answer. 437.7m. If there were 8 lanes it would be 53.03m

Nearly all outdoor track lanes are 1.07 meters (42 inches) or 1.22 m (48 inches). There are some tracks in Asia with 1.25 m wide lanes. I don't know of any outdoor track with 1.0 meter wide lanes. As previously noted, http://www.eracewalk.com does a nice job.
