In 2015, Strava, an international running and cycling tracking app, reported the average speed for men in the United States was 9:03 minutes per mile (1.6 kilometers). The average pace for women was 10:21 per mile. That data is based on over 14 million logged runs.
Is 20 mph Fast For a Human? Yes, If you run the entire hundred metres in 20mph, you will get a time of 11.1 seconds.
Yes, 15mph is very fast for a runner as it equates to a 4-minute mile. 15mph represents the fastest a human can run, with extensive training, for a distance of 1 mile to 2 miles. Sprinters can run faster, but obviously for a much shorter duration.
The speed of the moving treadmill belt is measured in miles per hour, or mph. This correlates to how fast you would be moving forward if you were walking or jogging outdoors. If you increase the speed to 10 on the treadmill, you are running at 10 mph. That’s a brisk pace, and equivalent to a 6 minute mile.
A noncompetitive, relatively in-shape runner usually completes one mile in about 9 to 10 minutes, on average. If you’re new to running, you might run one mile in closer to 12 to 15 minutes as you build up endurance. Elite marathon runners average a mile in around 4 to 5 minutes.
17mph is about one mile in 3.6 min. As a 4 min mile is considered very fast, then, yes, you would generally be considered quite fast. IF you are running a mile. Usiah Bolt holds the record at 27.5 mph, but that speed was held only briefly during his world record 100 meter dash in 2009.
How fast is a 20 mph 40 yard dash? Obviously, it isn’t a 40 yard sprint from the blocks, but at 20 mph a player is covering 40 yards in 4.09 seconds.
We’ve seen humans experience, for a very brief period of time, as much as 40 Gs acceleration, which is 40 times the force of gravity—and they’ve survived.
According to Fox News, humans—who top out at roughly 23 mph —may one day be able to reach phenomenal speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. That study showed that speed is based more on contracting muscle fibers than it is negated by sheer force of running.
The record for a marathon (26 and a bit miles) is 2 hours 1 minute 39 seconds. So about 13 mph. If you could keep up 17mph for 26 and a bit miles then you would be considered fast.

40 MPH: The fastest speed humans can run. The current fastest human in the world is Usain Bolt, who can run at nearly 28 miles per hour —some streets have lower speed limits than that! Bolt holds the record for the 100-meter sprint, clocking in at 9.58 seconds, reports BBC.

If you run a 5K, you should be happy with yourself no matter the results, but it’s natural to want to know if your time is above or below average. Average by age and sex.

|20 to 24||29:27||36:22|
|25 to 29||31:09||36:16|
|30 to 34||31:27||38:41|
Your maximum sprinting speed is likely to fall between 8 and 12 mph.
