There are 1,609.344 meters in a mile. When 1 length = 1 lap, you would need to complete 64.3 laps to swim a mile.
64 laps to swim a mile in a 25 meter pool
1 mile = 1760 yards so, at 25 yards per lap, you would need to swim 1760/25 = 70.4 laps.
If the pool is 25 yards , and a lap is one length of the pool, then it would take 70.4 laps to go a mile. In a 25 meter pool you need to swim 64.4 laps. In collegiate swimming competitions, the swimmers in the mile event swim 64 laps in 25m pools.
A mile is 1600m, therefore you need to swim 32 laps of a 50m pool to equal 1 mile
Each lap in a pool is 25 meters. There are 1600 meters in a mile. 25m x 20 laps = 500 meters. You would need to swim 64 laps to make a mile. Therefore 20 laps is 0.31 miles.
There is 1,609.344 metres in a mile, so to swim one mile in a 25 metre pool you would have to do 64.37 lengths or laps.
first, how many laps to swim a mile in a 25 yard pool. Second, how many laps to swim a mile in a 25 meter pool. Third, subtract the lowest number to get your answer.
It would be 15 laps.
