What is an average time for a 46 year old male to run a half marathon?

I think that's a bit of an impossible question! My other half saw himself as a very average runner and did a couple of half maras at around 1:40 when he was in his mid 40s.

Bu there are so many variables - not least what do you call average!

Please miss, I know this!

Or at least, this handy calculator runbayou.com tells me that a 46-year-old man will score a 50% WAVA if he runs a half marathon in 2:07:50 nerd

I looked at that too - but it seems unreasonably slow for a 46 year old bloke! I always see 60 percent as average, even though obviously 50% is.

Raffo's a better runner than you gave him credit for, Sharkie :)

I think that's where I got the idea 60% is average from V-rap. He INSISTS he is only 'very average'.

And, YOU, missis have room to talk! You always go on about being mediocre and rare;y score anything lower than 70 never mind 60 percent!

V'rap's link unfortunately has rotted, but this link will give you, yes you personalised times for popular distances at specific wavas fetcheveryone.com/race-standards.php

There is a calculator here fetcheveryone.com/training-calculators-wava.php

What is average? I reckon the median wava of those who actually run events is probably around 55, mean time wava around 57-58. I agree that Raffo underestimates himself.

Got something to say?
