A thousand feet is roughly equivalent to one fifth of a mile. Given that a football field is 300 feet long, a 1,000-foot distance equals three and a third football fields.
5,280 feet make up a mile, so 1,000 feet make up around 19% of a mile. 1,000 feet is equivalent to 304.8 metres, or 3/10 of a kilometre, in metric units. Men now hold the 200-meter world record at 19.19 seconds, and the 400-meter record stands at 43.18 seconds. A top-tier athlete might do a 300 m (or 1,000 ft) run in around 31 seconds.
