How many miles in an oval outdoor field track in lane 4?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It depends on how long the track is, but on the normal 400M track, it takes a little more than four laps to make a mile (1609.344M), in lane 1.

If you use the line marked 400M in each lane, then you will also run 400M in that lane, but once you go past the common start/finish line, you are going more than 400M per lap.

The distance covered will be different depending upon whether the outside lane is the 4th lane (some practice and MS tracks), the 6th lane (some small HS tracks), the 8th lane (most HS, college and international tracks) or the 9th lane (some elite college and Olympic level international tracks).

How far apart are the hurdles in the 300 meter hurdle race?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The distance between 300 Hurdles (or 400 Hurdles) is 35 meters. The distance to the first hurdle (in high school races) is 45 meters and 10 meters from the last (8th) hurdle to the finish line. This is exactly the same as the first 300 meters of a 400 Hurdle race, though the relative position on the track is moved to finish at the common finish line. All the distances on hurdle spacing are available at: http://www.trackinfo.org/hurdles101.html

Is 400 meter hurdles anaerobic or aerobic?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

the 400m is an almost entirely anaerobic race if run competitively. This is because the body cannot adequately supply energy through the oxidative system alone. Thus the body reverts to the ATP-PcR and fast glycogen systems to produce energy more rapidly. Both of these processes produce usable energy without oxygen, thus they are anaerobic.

What you have to do if you jump a hurdle?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, that results in disqualification, and is slower than going over it. Also, a common technique is kicking down the hurdles. This usually results in disqualification at the collegiate level, but you can get away with it with under-trained officials in high school.

How many miles in an oval outdoor field track in lane 8 going around once?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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 run

400 + 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.

What is the difference between a relay and a dash?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A relay involves 4 people passing on a baton for the race (4X100, 4X400 etc.)

A dash is like a sprint and is run individually (100m 200m 400m etc.) The difference is that a relay is run with more than one person.
