Strength is certainly a requirement for a 5 mile race, but it is actually an endurance race.
a mile and a half
If you are running the race it is much longer than a race you are watching.
That depends on the number of miles run in the race.
If your only running 1 mile then 5:27 is nothing special. But if your running a race, like in cross country its pretty insane. I'm 13 and run cross country for the wilde lake high school cross country team and have done a 5:47 first mile and a 6:03 second mile. Finished with a time of 18:48 because of running the last mile slow. It also depends if you're built for running. I gave up cross country due to the fact that no matter how long I trained I couldn't get down to a 6 minute mile.
An average mile time for a 15 year old boy should be about 5:45-6:00. If you are running a distance race (like a 5k) your first mile split should be about 6:10.
Many, many people have run a 5 minute mile. It is not even an accomplishment in the competitive running community. It has been accomplished since people began running the mile.
Running is faster. You can run a mile in about 5-8 minutes. It takes about 20 minutes to swim a fast mile.
The Indy 500 is a 500 mile race every memorial day weekend last year was the 94th running of this race and the 64th uninterrupted race.
The secret of running the mile is to run it so fast that although you run as hard and as quickly as you can at the end, it is only as fast as the rest of the race, yet slow enough that the pace is actually held.
A 26 mile race is a marathon.
no, more like a 6 min. to 5 min. mile pace
A quarter mile is 402.336 metres. Therefore a quarter mile race is slightly longer than a 400 metre race.
A mile race is 5,280 feet, or 1609.34 m, which is about 7% longer than a 1500 m race.
It depends on the pacing. I am 172 lbs and running on a level surface I burn 100 calories for a mile and at 10% inclined surface I burn 200 calories for a mile. This is at 4-5 MPH pace.
5:20 per mile. For an elite woman
Most tracks are 440 yards in length, which would be 1/4 mile.
It is 4.4 feet per second-squared.
This depends ont he legnth of the race and the size of the track. If a race is .5 miles long and the race track is 1 mile long, there will only be half a lap. If the race is a mile long and the race track is .25 miles around, then there will be 4 laps. So, there is no definite way to answer this.
