And lots of it. Our predictions are based on the actual race results and interval workouts from running logs of competitive runners. Over 6.9 million miles of running log data, including over 10,000 race results, were collected and analyzed in order to build our prediction algorithm.
The 5k prediction algorithm should be used to get a rough estimate of your current 5K fitness - helping you set goals and paces for an upcoming race. That being said, there is no better way to find out how fast you can run a 5k than racing a 5k. Run Augur was created out of curiousity and is not meant to be a substitute for good old fashioned training and racing.
