The original answer is misleading 15MPH is world class.

Sprinting up to 100 yards - record is ~23 MPH - average ~14

Running up to a mile /1600 meters record is ~16MPH - average ~10MPH

Marathon distance record ~26 Mile/42 Km is ~13MPH/21KmPH

reasonable 9MPH 14KmPH (NY marathon qualification time)

For figuring out how fast you can get between two points these are probably better values as they assume you can actually not spend too much time recovering.

The Average walking speed is 3-4 MPH 5-6 KmPH or about 100 yards/meters per minute

Running speed sustained is about twice that 8 MPH, 12 KmPH or 200 yards/meters per minute.
