Who is faster? The Ultimate State Comparison for Marathons By: RunRepeat.com

Here is a study that was sent to me that I thought was interesting to share. It was done by Jens Jakob Andersen and assisted by Ivanka Andreeva Nikolova. The team has the following credentials: Andersen is a former competitive runner and statistician from Copenhagen Business School, Nikolova holds a Ph.D. in Mathematical Analysis. This was done for RunRepeat.com.


The fastest state in the US for 2016 is Massachusetts – in overall. The fastest women are from Massachusetts, the fastest men from Vermont.
