Marathon Time Predictor Questionnaire

We are creating a tool to help runners more accurately calculate their predicted marathon finish time. In addition to incorporating peer reviewed scientific data in the development of an algorithm, we are collecting training and performance data from runners. The following questionnaire takes about 3-4 minutes of your time to complete. All answers and information are completely confidential and will not be shared with any 3rd parties.

This is a questionnaire to gather information to create a marathon predictor tool. It is not an actual prediction tool yet.
