What is a mile?

A mile is 5,280 feet, 1,760 yards or 1,609  meters (1.61 km).  A Roman mile was originally 5,000 feet, but the UK changed the mile based on a furlong (660 feet).  8 furlongs became the standard for the mile (8 x 660 = 5280).  The United States as well as two other countries are the only places that still use the Imperial system for weights and measures.  The fastest mile ever ran is  3 minutes, 43 seconds by Moroccan Hicham El Geurrouj.
