Asked by anonymous -
This question can also be asked as:
How long does it take for a healthy average human to run ten feet?
What is the median running speed of a human being ( m/s . f/s )?
That's a very badly defined question, what do you mean by average: average max speed, average speed over a longer distance? I'll give the best answer I can give nontheless:
A fast boy may have a maximum speed of 25kms pr hour/ 15 miles pr hour.
A fast adult man can sprint at speeds of up to 40kms pr hour / 25 miles pr hour
But long distance runners over say 10kms run at slightly above 20kms pr hour /12,5 miles pr hour.
Women run about 10% slower.
a average boy can run 28kg
