# How many miles per hour can a healthy young male run?

Question #80493. Asked by lask. (May 16 07 6:12 AM)

Michael Johnson was clocked, in 2000, at just over 37mph. Given that he was a trained athlete, I would say that the average healthy adult young male should be capable of around 30mph.

Edited by RMG to revise 200 to the year 2000

The average is 20MPH.

"The fastest man in the world is always a matter of interpretation, because a 200 meter, or 1500 meter runner might beg to differ. But the benchmark is the 100 meter and Asafa Powell is definately the fastest man in the world.

36.88 km/hour or 22.9 miles per hour"

Michael Johnson

"On July 29 he easily captured the 400 m Olympic title with a time of 43.49 s, beating Roger Black of Great Britain by almost a second. At the 200 m final on August 1, Johnson ran the opening 100 m in 10.12 s, achieved a peak speed of over 40 km/h (25 mph), and finished the race in 19.32 s, shattering the world record he had set just months before."
