try using:
;<input type="button" name="S1" value="Find distance" onclick="distance()" />

Or, if you don't want to use type="button", you'll have to return false on the onsubmit event so that the form doesn't submit:
<input type="submit" name="S1" value="Find distance" onclick="distance(); return false;" />

But I like MrAdam's solution better. :)
