How long does it take to run 1.5km?

Most people should aim to do it in under 8 minutes.

How long will it take to complete a 10K?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This definitely depends... Walking (20 min/mile) = about 124 minutes Beginners (11-13 min/mile) = 68-80 minutes Average (8-11 min/mile) = 49-68 minutes Fast (5-7 min/mile) = 31-43 minutes Most NORMAL people probably run about 9-12 min/mile... Just to estimate. Keep in mind that your 10k pace will be slower than, say, your 5k pace, because it's a longer distance. If you know your pace per mile (example 10:32), just multiply it by 6.2 to get your estimated 10k time. Your actual time, however, will be at least 30 seconds slower.

What is the average time to run a kilometer?

That really depends on your fitness level. Elite runners do about 3 minutes to the km, while amateurs might do about the double. Anything from less than 30 minutes to more than one hour. I'd be fairly pleased if I did it in 40.

Who won the Mens 4 mile world record?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

According to Gerry Lindgren, the men's 4 mile world record is 16:08, set by Gerry Lindgren in 1968 just prior to the Olympics. He apparently ran the time at Mt. Sac, claiming that he averaged 4:02 per mile over the hilly course. An unbelievable time, literally, considering he would have set the 3000 meter, 2 mile, 3 mile, and 5000 meter world records (set on a track, mind you) along the way. The real answer to the question is presumably the time Bekele recorded while en route to his 10000 meter world record of 26:17. According to a pace calculator, his time at 4 miles was roughly 16:55.

How many times around a football pitch is 1.6 km?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Not every football pitch is exactly the same size, which makes the answer this question produces very different. According to "Association Football Pitch" - Wikipedia - the average dimensions for a British Premier League Soccer Pitch measured 104 x 68 meters, or 114 x 74 yards. If this was the case, then running one lap of a soccer oval would be equivalent to 344 meters.

So...

1600 / 344 = 4.652

In other words, jogging around a soccer field just over 4 1/2 times would equal the desired distance you're after.

However, if you really want to make sure you've got that exact mile in, then keep reading...

The field description in the laws of soccer say that a field must be at least 90 meters long, but no longer than 120 meters. In the same sense, it must be at least 45 meters wide, but no wider than 90 meters.

With this being the criteria, the smallest official soccer field possible would measure 90 x 45, which would give a perimeter of 270 meters.

1600 / 270 = 5.926

With a pitch this size, you would have to run around the pitch nearly six complete times for a full mile. On the other hand, a pitch that measures 90 x 120 meters would give a perimeter of 420 meters.

1600 / 420 = 3.801

With a pitch this size, you would have to run around the pitch nearly four complete times for a full mile.

Of the three scenarios, your safest assumption is with the first, unless you can see it is very unusual in size in the fact it is either extremely big or extremely small.

What is a good mile time for a 13 year old?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

maybe around 3 mins, but it depends on her speed and how fast she can run!!

Fastest mile ever run is, I believe 4 minutes.

So, a good mile and a half would be about 9-11 minutes, at a good pace, but like the previos poster said, it all depends on their speed.

How much can you decrease your 5k time in 5 months when its currently 37 min?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It depends on if you go running everyday and for how long. It's better to vary the distance you run per week (e.x. week 1 20miles, week 2 20miles, week 3 15miles, week 4 25miles) because it helps with your distance and speed. It also depends on if you push yourself of not, because if you don't then you probably won't see the results you want. I would also cross train and work on my core.

How long does it take to run a half marathon?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The amount of time it would take an individual to train for half of a marathon is determined on the individual's level of physical fitness at the start of the training. If the individual has no fitness level, it would be safer to start slow, as not to hurt yourself. This type of training should be expected to take anywhere from 3-6 months.

Who broke the 3-minute mile and when?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No one on record has broken the 3 minute mile in the last 116 years (since the first modern Olympics). Any records older than that are up for speculation since the mile was not always a standardized race. Here are a few cool stories though:

In 1870 a native American ran behind a horse for a mile. The horse was clocked at 2:40, the native American was not clocked. However, eye witnesses noted his distance behind the horse at the start and at the end of the mile as being very close to the same.

Ladas of Argos in the ancient Greek Olympics. No specific time was recorded, and the distance was 20 stades (about 2.5 miles), but the inscription on his statue says "His speed was demoniac, nor could it even be described."

Asahel from The Bible (2nd Samuel 2) during a battle, chased Abner running fast enough to impale himself on the butt end of a stationary spear which went through his entire body including the armor which he was wearing during the chase. The physics of such an account would suggest that a minimum speed of over 20mph (3 minute mile pace) would have been needed for the blunt pole to travel in one side and out the other side of his body through armor and muscle.

In England during the time of the Roman Empire (2nd century CE) entire tribes of warriors (with similar lifestyles to the native Americans) were noted as being able to catch and overwhelm horse riders while running on foot.

I would be difficult to get any of these, or the dozens of other accounts, to be recognized and accepted by modern scholars. And none of them could be labeled with an exact time or proven to be under a 3 minute mile, but they make for an interesting study.

Why is the length of a marathon 26miles and 385 yards?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards),[1] that is usually run as a road race. The event was instituted in commemoration of the fabled run of the Greek soldier Pheidippides, a messenger from the Battle of Marathon to Athens.

Why is a marathon 26 miles?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The 1896 Olympic marathon distance was 24.8 miles. This was the first modern Olympics, which took place in Athens Greece. According to a famous Greek legend, a Greek foot-soldier (thought by many to be Pheidippides) was sent from the plains of Marathon to Athens with the news that an army of Athenian hoplites had fought and driven off the vastly larger invading Persian army. As he approached the leaders of the city-state of Athens, he staggered and exclaimed, "Rejoice! We Conquer!" and then collapsed and died. The distance from the plains of Marathon to Athens is 24.8 miles.

The marathon distance was later changed as a result of the 1908 Olympic Games in London, England. That year, King Edward VII and Queen Alexandria requested that the marathon begin at Windsor Castle (20 miles west of central London), so that the Royal family could view the start. The course distance between the castle and the Olympic Stadium in London was 26 miles. Event organizers added an extra 385 yards around the stadium track, so the competitors would finish directly in front of the King and Queen's royal viewing box.The final distance for the 1908 Olympic marathon was 26 miles, 395 yards (26.21875 miles). The Olympic marathon distance varied until 1921 when it was set at exactly 42.195 kilometres. 26 miles, 385 yards is used as the Imperial approximation (the difference is about a centimetre).
