How fast is the average person?

Everyone has a perfect “running pace”, where our bodies use the least amount of oxygen to cover a certain distance. The shorter the distance, the faster the pace we can sustain. The average man jogs at a speed of 8.3 mph, or 100m in 27 seconds, while the average woman runs at 6.5 mph, covering 100m in 34 seconds.

Also question is, what animals can outrun a human?

That may sound like quite a workout, but keep in mind that you would have an extreme motivation nipping at your heels.
  • Rattlesnake. Top Speed: 3 miles per hour.
  • Alligator. Top Speed: 11 miles per hour.
  • Tiger. Top Speed: 35 miles per hour.
  • Lion. Top Speed: 30 miles per hour.
  • Elephant.
  • Chimpanzee.
  • Killer Bees.
  • Rhinoceros.

How fast is the average bear?

Polar bear: 25 mph

Can a human being outrun a dog?

Horses' average distance-running speed is 5.8 meters per second—a canter. Elite human runners, however, can sustain speeds up to 6.5 meters per second. Even run-of-the-mill joggers typically do between 3.2 and 4.2 meters per second, which means they can outrun dogs at distances greater than two kilometers.
