Meter conversion

How far is 400 meters compared to a mile? Does it equate to apx. 1/4 of a mile per 400 meters? The treadmills I use only scale to the mile, not kilometers.

Re: Meter conversion

400m is basically 1/4 a mile.

1 mile = 1,609.344 meters

Re: Meter conversion

Disregard my post. I found my answer here:

http://www.unitconversion.org/length...onversion.html

Just type in the distance and it converts immediately. For those who want to know w/out looking it up...yes, 400 is just a freckle short of 1/4 of a mile.

Now get running!
