    What distance do you think the average person can run/jog non-stop?

    I tried to google this but didn't find what I'm looking for.

    The average person that does not train for anything, how long (distance wise) do you the he or she can run without stopping? Even people that walk the heart trail at the park, I wonder how long they could go if they ran. Could they make it a half mile?

    I remember in Middle School/High School all the kids had to finish 1 mile (4 laps around track) and hardly any one could finish via running -- most had to finish by walking it.

    I'm going to guess not even a 1/4 mile for the average person.

    Yeah,

    Completely agree with pengh. Around 1/4 of a mile, maybe a 1/3 if they were running for their lives. Most average people dont have the greatest endurance.

    Honestly the reason I'm asking is because I tried running the heart trial (warmed up with 5 min walk) and made a little over 1/4 mile (not sprinting -- just jogging) before huffing and puffing/slight cramp. It really made me upset that i was that out of shape cardio wise.

    It takes a lot to run. I read an article in runner's world magazine about a year ago and it stated the humans are built for endurance. There was a subject that ran 50 marathons in a certain amount of time (not sure the time anymore but I think it was less than 3 months). I think he ran one almost everyday day. That is 26 miles. All I know is I can't run for crap and my best 2 mile run in the Army was 14.54.

    I used to run in high school (track and cross country). As much as the training helped my running, I also learned that there is very much a mental aspect to it. YOUR BODY is capable of so much more than you think it is, you just have to learn that, and push through the pain. I learned this by having a coach yelling at me to keep going/run faster when I thought I was going to die. I kept pushing, and lo and behold, I didn't die. I still use those lessons today even though I have only recently gotten back into running.

    ETA: Keep huffing and puffing, assuming you aren't horribly out of shape (and that would not be "average"), you aren't going to have a heart attack. The worse that will happen is you will puke, and if you really push it, you will fall down and not be physically able to continue. Wash, rinse, and repeat, and before you know it you will be putting the miles under your feet before you even start to feel bad.

    A true average is going to include all the people out there that can run marathons, so I'm going to say 1 mile. But I would bet that the median is closer to 1/2 or even 1/4 mile.

    I am fat and out of shape but I started running a few weeks ago. I do a 1.6 mile route. I walk ~1/10th of a mile before I start running and end it walking the same ~1/10th. Inbetween I alternate between running ~1/4mi and walking ~1/10mi. It takes me ~21:30 to do which is ~13 minute mile pace. My running sections are done at a 7-8 minute mile pace. Just the other day my achilles tendon and my knee were bothering me so I took a different approach and jogged at a pace just above a walk to lessen the impact. I was able to run the whole thing minus 3 one minute walk breaks. My running app errored though so I wasn't able to track my stats. Since I am just starting out and so out of shape pretty much anyone should be able to do at least this.

    In the latest Muscle & Fitness mag it has a list of averages for adult males and IIRC the average mile time was like 12:20.

    Like the ethics of peeing in a pool vs peeing into a pool ... location, location, location ...

    Average American? 1/4 to 1/2 mile.
    Average sub-saharran African? Couple of miles? I honestly don't know.
    Lifts:
    Bench: 305lb
    Deadlift: 415lb
    Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
    Pull-up: bodyweight x2

    "There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."

    On my first run ever I ran 4.5 kilometers non-stop.
    In a month and a half I increased the distance to 7 km.
    This year my goal is 10 km non-stop.

    If you were running for your life, I'm sure you would run farther than 1,320ft.

    Dogs chasing people is more likely than hamsters?

    Is that the kind of crazy sh*t that goes on in Canada?

    I watched a girl get attacked by a squirrel while in college (U of I where all the azns feed the squirrels by hand for some odd reason). She made it about 15 feet before completely freaking out and climbing on a garbage can.

    So there's your answer, 15 feet.

    LOL. I always like when people do studies or someone on the news talks about the "average American" and just kinda laugh to myself hoping they're not talking about me...but unfortunately a lot of the time I find that they are...

    An easy jog.. unless you were some total couch creature I'd go with a 1/4 to 1/2 mile for almost anyone that was at least in good health. I've done a 1/2 mile recently which is exactly the length of my block. I did walk back though...

    Its all about endurance and conditioning.I did the 200 and 400 in high school, the 400 (back then it was the 440 yard) was hard to do in a respectable time. My sister with no prior training joined the cross country team and would do 10-15 mile races.

    its an odd question because if you are saying the average American i would have to say less than a mile. But if you are taking the world average you have to throw in a lot of people from africa who can just flat out run for days. So im goign to say the average person can do over a mile.
