Given that Haile Gebrselassie's world record time is currently 2hrs 3 mins and 59 seconds then his average speed while doing this was

V= D/T

V= 26.2 miles / 2 hrs 3 mins 59 secs

V= 26.2/ 123.9833333333 secs

V= 0.2097056055921... miles per secons

V= 0.2097056055921... x 60

V= 12.582336335528 miles per hour

so in summary, Haile Gebrselassie was running an average of 12.58 miles per hour when he set his world record in 2008
