View Full Version : Running speeds of 2 year old children

07-21-1997, 03:04 AM
Dear Biomch-l subscribers:

A colleague asked my help in finding any information on typical running
speeds of very young children, between 18-30 months of age. I realize many
of them probably do not achieve an airborne phase by 2 years, but I have
not been able to find ANY quantitative data on speed of locomotion at that
age. Any help you can give would be appreciated. I'll post a summary of
replies. Thanks!
