How Many Times Do I Have To Run Around The Track To Run 1.5 Miles?

by Christina
(Butler PA)

I have to run 1.5 miles in 16:35 min in April. I am not sure how many times I have to run around the track to get to 1.5 miles.


Answer by Dominique:


Hi Christina,


Thanks for your question.
We'd first have to know the track length. Tracks are usually 400 metres or 400 yards. You should check with the owners of the track (e.g. your school, your athletic club, your council) what the length of the track is.





I'll assume it is 400 metres for now.
1.5 miles is a little over 2,400 metres, i.e. 6 track lengths.

This 1.5 miles distance sure seems popular lately for fitness tests. I should start a separate 1.5 mile running training helpline....

I suggest you also have a look at the following pages for some additional running training advice:

1.5 Mile Run

1.5 Mile Run for Army

Speed Endurance

Training for Police Physical Test

Best of luck with your fitness test.
