If you assumed that Usain Bolt could sprint a marathon at his 100m world record speed when he clocked 9.58 seconds, he would finish in 1:07:22 (2:34 min/mile). Maybe slightly quicker if the course was downhill all the way with a strong tailwind!

[The problem with seven league boots is the tendency for the wearer to suffer a killer groin strain on the initial step ;-) ]
