    Unless the course dictates walking each lap (A big hill or some other crappy section)

     

    1-3 MPH?  I walk 4-5 MPH its not lolligag time ... plus I walk once per hour 2 minutes that is it until it needs to be more

      I can walk a sub-14 pace on an 8% grade for 30+ minutes on the treadmill. Outdoors I can take it to a sub-15 pace on similar hills. Practice makes perfect.

        I have only run 2- 24 hr. races.  I am a very slow marathon runner (arthritis)  so I try to keep up a  run 10 min. walk 5 min. strategy for my 24 hr.

        This works pretty good for the first 14 hrs. or so, then I have to walk the rest.

         

        I trained by running and walking 2-3 times per day, various distances.
