average speed/average pace ?

Hi all, to some i'm sure this is a silly question but what is the difference between average speed and average pace, i thought they would be the same but the different readings on my garmin say otherwise.


  • Speed is usually how many miles/km you will travel in an hour.

    Pace is how many minutes it takes you to run a km/mile.

    It's just a different way of expressing how fast you are going.

    Speed 10km/hr - Pace 6mins/km

  • thanks for clearing that up folks
