Calculate Pace vs finish time

The table below uses your average speed in MPH to determine time to complete a 26.2 mile Marathon.  In order to finish a Marathon in under an hour twenty minutes your average speed would need to be 20 miles per hour or a 3 minute per mile pace.  Knowing this is helpful for training.

Average Speed         Marathon finish Time               Pace per mile

16.0                            1 hour, 38 minutes                     3 minutes, 45 seconds

17.0                            1 hour, 32 minutes                     3 minutes, 32 seconds
