Yes and no. A tall person will be able to cover more distance with each step, but it will require more power as they have more to move; meaning the tall person may be better in the short-run, but they may tire quicker than the short runner. I'll say yes because the taller runner's legs are longer than the shorter runner,which cause the taller runner to take bigger steps than the shorter runner.

No, about the same. A tall person can cover more distance, but has to use power, and, it takes longer to get a longer stride, so that has nothing to do with it.

People with longer legs have a longer stride than shorter people, so they are often alot better in sprints. However, it doesnt matter as much in other areas, such as middle and long distance running, where the runners small size provides an advantage.

Do taller people walk faster than shorter people?

Yes because they take bigger steps than shorter people. Typically yes, although that is not always true. Taller people normally have long legs which means they take larger steps (or, as is the case with me, they may take 'strides' instead of steps). Shorter people do sometimes walk faster though because they take more steps at a faster pace and thus cover more ground. It honestly just depends on the person.
