It all depends on your age, an 18 year old tends to be faster than a 60 year old, it also varies with sex, as Males tend to be faster than Females. Averages are always hard to base upon due to various factors; age, sex, mobility, weight, height etc. with the below results being best estimates

Male averages:

Under 11 - 19 seconds

11-15 - 17 seconds

16-19 - 16 seconds

20-28 - 15 seconds

29-40 - 16 seconds

41-60 - 17 seconds

60+ - 18 seconds

Female averages:

Under 11 - 21 seconds

11-15 - 19 seconds

16-19 - 17 seconds

20-28 - 16 seconds

29-40 - 17 seconds

41-60 - 18 seconds

60+ - 22 seconds

These are based on the average person who does not do much exercise and of course people who do regular exercise, running, cycling, walking, swimming etc being slightly quicker.
