Stay at least 15 inches from the rail all the way around a 400 meter track and you will cover a quarter mile (440 yards) each lap. So you can run 4 laps in lane one and cover a mile, as long as you are on the outer part of the lane.

How long is one lap in the 6th lane on a 400-meter track?

400 meters. The track is designed so that no mater what lane you are in, the distance is equal as long as lane 6 starts ahead of 5-1. There are starting markers on the track that will say 400m, 200m, ect. and that is how you know where to start. The starting points are scattered because of the potion of your lane, if you are in lane 1, you will be starting in the back. If you are in lane 8, you will be in front. The only time you are not staggered is if you are on a straight path such as a 100m or 50m.

How many laps around a running track equals a marathon?

Since 1921, the IAAF has stated that a marathon's distance is standardized at 42.195K or 26 miles and 385 yards. If you are using a standard 400M track, and running exclusively in lane 1, then you will need to complete 105.4875 laps in order to complete a marathon or essentially 105 and 1/2 laps. If you use an outer lane, then you will not need to run as many laps.
