When running on a 400 meter track, four laps around equals about a mile. Treadmills also have mile settings to make it easier to determine the distance covered. Most public runs are 5k's or greater, which is equal to about 3.1 miles. To convert kilometers to miles, simply multiply the number of kilometers by the conversion rate of 0.62137 to find the answer.
