Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

  • Donstar says: Can you please pass the details of this run onto all members - 5K Charity fun run at the Duthie Park on 1st April 2012 - www.funrun5k.co.uk

    Since the standard for tracks built in the last 20+ years is 400M, then you must go 9.344 metres further than 4 laps. Over 90% of the outdoor tracks in existence are only 400M and will thus require the extra 9.344 metres 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 metre more than 1 mile, but you won't be short of a mile, as you would be if you only do 4 laps.
  • shanksi says: I'm just in the group to make up the numbers ;)
  • Mother Duck says: I could pop my head in here too and have another bash at that dreaded track!
