Is the race conversion calculator a good running calculator to use?
In summary, this is a really good running calculator to use. But you need to be careful when using it to predict how fast you will run. Use the race conversion calculator as a gauge of your abilities not necessarily as the goal time for your next race.
How many miles would you run in one race?
Use this running calculator if you want to know how well you could do in one race, based on the results of another race. Just make sure you take in the information that is provided after this calculator. It is important. Use dots, no commas. So 26.2 miles, not 26,2…
What does the equivalent Race Performance tab show me?
This tab shows you the equivalent race performances for the time you entered.* Results will display here. Read Full Instructions, background and insight on how to use Jack’s calculator.
What is an equivalent performance for 100 meter dash?
** By equivalent performance, we mean another run with the same age graded percent. Of course, training for a 100 meter dash is ridiculously different from training for a 100 mile race, so just because the calculator gives you an equivalent time doesn’t mean you’ll automatically be able to run it.
How do I figure out my race pace?
How to calculate running paceDivide your run time by your distance.If you ran 3 miles in 30 minutes: 30 min ÷ 3 mi = 10 minutes per mile pace.
What will my race time be?
The formula is T2 = T1 x (D2/D1) 1.06 where T1 is the given time, D1 is the given distance, D2 is the distance to predict a time for, and T2 is the calculated time for D2.
What is my 3K pace?
3K pace/effort: The pace or intensity level you can hold for a 3K race, which is just shy of 2 miles. If you’ve never raced a 3K, this pace is about 20 seconds per mile faster than your 5K pace. It also equates to about a 8–10 on the RPE scale.
What is my 5K and 10K pace?
The second way to calculate your running pace for long distances is to simply add 20-30 seconds onto your 5K pace time to find your 10K pace, and another 20-30 seconds for your half-marathon pace.
What is a good 5K time?
Many runners complete a 5K in 30 to 40 minutes, and many runners are satisfied with their time if it’s around this benchmark. The average walker finishes a 5K in 45 to 60 minutes.
How accurate is Garmin race predictor?
Garmin’s VO2 Max status is pretty accurate. Some studies suggest it overestimates someone’s VO2 Max (particularly in men than women) while other studies suggest the opposite is true. Almost all studies find that Garmin’s VO2 Max estimate is within about 5 percent of your true VO2 Max value.

about 15 to 20 seconds per mile10K. The 10K (6.2 miles) is a tough distance. Even though it’s twice as long as the 5K, the 10K is only run about 15 to 20 seconds per mile slower than 5K race pace.
Is 42 minutes a good 10K time?
On average, casual runners are usually able to finish a 10k race in 50 to 70 minutes. The median time it takes a person to run a 10k is between 56 and 64 minutes. Someone who is an avid runner in excellent health could expect to finish a 10k in about 43 to 50 minutes.
Is 26 minutes a good 5K time?
For more experienced runners, running blogs and websites suggest an average 8-minute-per-mile pace, resulting in a finish time of about 26 minutes. Very advanced runners may be able to complete a 5K in less than 20 minutes.
How do I predict my 400m time?
Good 400 metres runners are at about 80% of their 100 metres speed at the end of the race. The slowdown from 95% to 80% indicates a second 200 metres of approximately 87.5% of the 100 metres speed, i.e. 24.8 seconds. This would give a 400 metres time of 47.9 seconds.
What is a good 10K time?
Most runners who are reasonably fit and clock 15–30 miles per week can expect to finish a 10K race in 50–70 minutes. More advanced runners will usually finish in 43–50 minutes. Exceptionally fit runners can average a mile every 7 minutes, whereas more casual runners can expect to run a mile every 10–14 minutes.
Is a sub 4 hour marathon good?
Across the board, most people finish a marathon in 4 to 5 hours, with an average mile time of 9 to 11.5 minutes. A finishing time that’s under 4 hours is a real accomplishment for everyone other than elite runners, who can finish in around 2 hours.
How do I predict my half-marathon time?
The easiest way to estimate your half marathon pace is to look at your race times over shorter distances. Using certain factors, you can calculate your expected half marathon time from your 5K or 10K personal best (PB). Formula for calculating a realistic half marathon time: 5K PB x 4.667.
How to calculate age graded percent?
To calculate your age graded percent (often abbreviated AGP or AG%), we take your time and divide it by the world record time at that distance. Then, depending on your age, we multiply the resulting percentage by the appropriate WMA Factor.* The result is your age graded percent.
Who built the RRCA running tool?
This tool was built by Robert James Reese, an RRCA-certified running coach who has run more than 80 marathons with a personal best of 2:52:11.
What is a running calculator?
Our running calculator allows you to enter a race time, and then uses that to determine equivalent times for other races distances, as well as appropriate training paces. The calculator assumes you are equally talented and trained for each distance, so it works best when planning for races of similar distances. But you can also use it to compare runners who do very different events.
What is a 100% world class rating?
