Avoid the wall with Running Endurance Calculator

For marathon runners looking to pound the streets and trails this weekend, a Harvard medical student has built an online tool to help marathon runners, in particular, avoid ‘the wall’.

Running Endurance Calculator is an applet designed for endurance runners to determine safe, personalised racing paces over distances such as the marathon.

The calculations are based on a mathematical model published in PLoS Computational Biology in October 2010. The full article provides background information on the physiology of endurance running and describes the model behind the calculator.
