Best Answer

A sprint is a short running race at speed. A marathon is a long distance running race, when stamina is more important that sprinting. Whichever race a competitor takes part in, the goal is to win. Therefore, the answer is the marathon.

Why does a 100M sprinter need muscle strength?

Sprinters use muscular strength/ power to get a good powerful and strong start from the starting blocks and also to sprint as hard as they can as usually sprinters cover a relatively short distance (100/200m). sprinting is also an anaerobic activity, if aerobic (such as marathon running) then muscular ENDURANCE would be required instead of muscular STRENGTH. However, when marathon running anaerobic respiration is needed as a final sprint towards the finish line.
