What is the average time of a girl in the 40 yard dash?


Answer by  joeaustin (6)

i believe 6 seconds depending on the athletic build and pace of the girl in question.for a slightly heavier person i believe 6.5 to 7 seconds may be appropriate. a dash is also all about pace so the probability of her increasing the pace to gain advantage over a close competitor can result in an early time of probably 5.5.

An average recreational time for a female in the 40 yard (or 36.58 meters) dash is approximately 5.8 seconds. A good time for a girl would be anything under 5 seconds. Without factoring in age, it would be difficult to come up with an average time, however, an average for adult females would be 5.8 seconds.

well depending on the terrain, i would guess 5.4 sec just because i have personally experienced the difference between concrete, the surface of artificial turf, and good old grass services.

On average a young girl in Jr High or early High school may run the 40 in less than 8 seconds.

a 5. 0 is fast. I am one of the fastest and i run it in 5 flat. on a very good day i can run 4. 9. but 4. 35 is about the speed of a professional football player. And a fast 17 year old guy runs a 4. 7.


Answer by  mani (813)

For a girl around the age of fourteen, it wiil be better if she runs within 5 sec to 6 sec. Anyone who says they run a 4. 35 or under 4. 7 is false unless she runs really fast

No HS girls run under 4.9 period unless it's a rolling start. Fastest female HS 50M (real track event so legit times) is 6.32. Less than 15 yards longer and the fastest 15 yards of the race (maybe 1.3-1.4 seconds). 6.32-1.4 = 4.92  add a comment

I'm in 7th grade and weight 50.3kg, is 5.8 fast for me? I was the fastest of my group, but compared to the average 12 year old, is it slow?
