When they place the starting runners on the track, they are not all set evenly. They are adjusted by lenght of each lane. I always walk the inside lane as it is exactly 1/4 mile. I do not know how much futher they others are. I have measure my pedometer on the track, and know that the inside is 1/4 mile.
Good luck on your 50 miles.!!

Hi! I've been with Spark just over one month and am adding exercise to my program. I have a September goal, to walk 50 miles by the end of the month.
I walk on a high-school track, and I know that one lap is equal to 1/4 mile. What I don't know, is whether or not it matters which lane I walk in. I'm thinking that you are actually walking further if you use the outside lane, rather than the inside one. Right???
Is it less than 1/4 mile per lap if I walk in the inside lane?
