Allow me to spare you the hyperbole: Usain Bolt is fast. He is, as far as we can tell, the fastest human who's ever lived — in 2009, at a race in Berlin, he ran the 100-meter dash is 9.58 seconds. This translates to an average speed of just over 23 mph (with a top speed closer to 30 mph).
Simply so, what is fastest speed a human can run?
How fast is the fastest person ever?
Despite this, the fastest human footspeed was recorded between 60 and 80 metres in Bolt's world record 9.58-second 100 metres in Berlin. He was clocked at 44.64kph or 27.8mph. So despite Gatlin's “record”, the official “fastest man on Earth” title still rests with Bolt – at least for now.
How fast does the average human being run?
Offensive linemen in the NFL have run as fast as 4.7 second 4o yard dashes. But drag them out to the 100 or a mile the speed virtuely disappears. Marathon runners can average 8.8mph for 26.2 miles. Best I can tell and would have to agree is the average human jogs at about 8mph, of course distance is the great variable.
