It is approximately 56 m longer per lap if you run in the 8th lane instead of lane 1.

I think the question asks for the total distance run if you fully run all 8 lanes.

If you begin in lane one, then lane 2 etc. through lane 8, this is a convenient way to keep track of how many laps you've done.

If the width of the lanes is 1.27 m (50 inches), and you run around the track once in each lane you will have run

400+408.99+415.959+423.939+431.918+439.898+447.878+455.857 = 3424.439 metres.

Suggestion: switch lanes at a consistant position on a straight section of track.

An average track is 400m. Though the outside land of a track adds a some meters to this. Total it would be around 450 meters.
