Who Runs More, Men or Women? The Sports Bras vs. Speedos Infographic

Let’s ask sweeping, sexist questions for a moment: do women run in more expensive shoes? Are men more inclined to race marathons? Who runs more?

If you’re looking for answers to these questions, look no further. This infographic shows us a lot of insights into how men and women are training, racing, and thinking differently about running.

From the data here, it looks like men run more in every aspect: from the number of weekly runs, to overall mileage and number of races. It seems that men also prefer races on the outer ends of the racing spectrum, from marathons to races shorter than three miles.

What does it all mean? Who knows, but it’s fun to look at.
