How many Yards in a Swimming Mile?

January 9th, 2018

 

So you’re headed to Granite Falls for yet another workout that includes, some of the best cardio there is, swimming. Just a few blocks from the pool you wonder “how many miles do I swim”? Granite Falls indoor pool is a 25 yard pool. 1 length is equal to 25 yards (one end of the pool to the other). One lap is 50 yards (down and back). 1 mile is approximately 1,650 yards, which is 66 lengths or 33 laps. Next time you’re in the pool count your laps to see if you can reach a mile or more. Happy swimming!
