The cheetah, at least in a fairly short race. A greyhound's top speed is between 35 and 40 mph, while the big cat can hit speeds in excess of 60 mph.

This is likely a trick question, if they are racing on land, the cheetah will win, and if they are racing in water then the dolphin will win. If this is not a trick question, and you are comparing the linear speed of the average dolphin and cheetah, then the cheetah would likely win in a short race (50m or less), while the dolphin would take the lead after the cheetah stops running at full speed.

Who would win in a race you or a cheetah?

It depends, if it's a short race, you would lose. Cheetah's can run 75 MPH. That's their top speed. A humans top speed is 20 mph, and that was an Olympic runner. I would say you lose. Luckily for you, if the race is about a mile, you have a chance. After running a little less than a mile, a cheetah will overheat and will rest for several minutes.

Is a dog faster than a cheetah in a long distance race?

No. A greyhound, which is a fast running dog, can run 45 miles per hour. A cheetah can normally run up to 70 miles per hour and have been clocked at speeds over 100 miles per hour. However, the cheetah soon tires; it can only sustain that speed for a minute or so, before needing a rest. Dogs on the other hand, will literally go until they die, and that could be for days on end.
