    4 laps is a mile. As to the rest of your question, do some research.

    It would actually be more than four laps. It's four laps around a 400m track and one lap around the football field is definitely not 400m.

    gotta figure in endzone, bleachers, track jump pits... high jump padding and bars...

    the home bleachers were outside the track, the away bleachers were between the track and the field.

    If there is an actual track around the football field then on the track it is 4 times around.

    If using the actual football field, asuming you went right along the line, it would be 320 yards. If you assume that there are 3 feet in a yard and 5280 feet in a mile then it would be 5.5 times around. Yes, rep points please.

    I wasn't referring to the entire complex. Four times around that would most definitely be more than a mile in most cases.

    I thought he was referring to running just around the field along the line.

    Stingywithdiner, you are correct except you may have miscalculated the distance around the football field a little. It's 120 yards down each sideline (240 yds combined) and something like 53 yds across the field (106 combined). The total would be 346 yds.

    I'm not exactly sure about the distance across the field. It's some odd number. In any case, it's a little more than 320 yds around the field. Still, it's somewhere between 5 and 5.5 times around to make a mile.
