500 meter tracks?
Explain a 385 yard track!!
Or for that matter, a 146.7 yard indoor track the Millrose used their entire history (until this year!).
Maybe the 385 yard track was meant to be the finish of a marathon course.
The Millrose track that was 11 laps to 1600 meters was only used the last decade or so. Before that, the track was 160 yards.
