As you ask around a football "field" (as opposed to a football "pitch") I guess you are talking about an American Football Field.

Assuming you are including all the playing part (ie including the end zones), the field is 360 ft long and 160 ft wide.

Its perimeter is therefore (360 ft + 160 ft) x 2 = 1040 ft

1 mile = 5280 ft

→ laps = 5280 ft ÷ 1040 ft/lap

= 51/13 laps

≈ 5.08 laps

4 laps

The treadmill instructions should specify the length of a "lap". A typical track-and-field track in the US (the sort you'd find circling a football field at an American high school) has a length of 440 yards, which is one quarter of a mile. Assuming the treadmill is using the same definition of a "lap", four such laps would constitute a mile.

An Olympic pool is 50 metres long so half a mile = 16.1 laps approx.

5000 meters would be 12.5 laps around an Olympic size (400 meters) track.

A mile. If you think about it, a football field is 100 yards, while a mile is four laps around a track! Obviously, the mile is larger.
