About

The Endurance Calculator is designed to enable endurance runners to determine safe, personalized racing paces over distances such as the marathon. The calculations it performs are based on a mathematical model by B. I. Rapoport, published in PLoS Computational Biology in October 2010. The full article, “Metabolic Factors Limiting Performance in Marathon Runners,” which provides background information on the physiology of endurance running and describes the model behind the calculator presented on this site, can be accessed here.
