How many laps around a running track equals one mile?

"4 laps around a regular track=1 mile"

Since the standard for tracks built in the last 20+ years is 400M, then you must go 9.344 meters further than 4 laps. Over 90% of the outdoor tracks in existence are only 400M and will thus require the extra 9.344 meters to equal a true mile.

This is why most track meets only run the 1500M or the 1600M and not the mile. Unfortunately, most people erroneously assume that 4 laps equal a mile, due to older tracks being built to a non-metric standard of 440 yards.

If you want to finish on the common start/finish line and you'd like to run/walk a mile, then you should start at the beginning of the 4x400M relay exchange zone, which is 10 meters before the finish line. By doing that you will run/walk about 1 meter more than 1 mile, but you won't be short of a mile, as you would be if you only do 4 laps.

What is the average time to run a 5k for female and male?

That is a broad question. Age, the course and weather are 3 huge contributing factors to a specific answer, but if you are just interested in what the average from all ages, for all courses is then your answer is somewhere between 30 - 40 minutes.

High school track stars run the distance in 15 minutes routinely. College & pro runners do so in 14 - 15 minutes. World record holder are sub 13 minutes racers!!

Women pro's tend to be about 2 minutes behind the best men.

What is the fastest seventh grade girls mile time?

that is not true my girlfriend,Robin Shumaker, who goes to school at pontotoc ms city school ran a 4:58 last night and her best is 4:42

Can't be true. Too fast for 7th grade. With a 4:42 in 7th grade, she's on track for the 2012 olympics. Jordan Hasay (current 12th grade phenom) only runs about a 4:32 mile, and she made the olympic trials finals last year.

Totally agree, 4:42 for 7th grade is physically impossible. World record is around 5:30.

My sister is Cory Mcgee and she is on a full ride at University of Florida and her time is around a 4:44 and she is only a freshman and i am in seventh grade and my mile time is around a 5:44 and improving. This is definatly not true so stop lieing to make yourself and friend feel good about yourself.

Why do athletes run around the track counter-clockwise?

As the heart is on the left side, for humans and animals, running anticlockwise makes the centrifugal force in the body to act from left to right. Whereas it is from right to left for clockwise running.

Superior venecava takes blood to the heart aided by heart suction. This vein carries blood from left to right. Centrifugal force due to anticlockwise running helps this suction.

If we run clockwise, the centrifugal force impedes suction. That is why, in olden days, health officers ensured that all carnival merri-go-rounds were run only in the anti-clockwise direction.

Racing tracks, animal shows in circuses, bullock-drawn pelt on wheels, all mostly have only left turns. Stairways in temple towers have only left turns for going up.
Clockwise running tires people, especially children, easily.

As we know that if we breathe from left nose hole, cool air will go inside and if we breathe from right nose hole, warm air will go inside. When we run on a circular track anticlockwise, we will breathe from right nose hole .Which will warm up our body and we can run more fast as when we start race, we first warm up our body and then start running.
