Comparison of World Class Running and Indoor rowing pace vs distance

2015-03-14_17-51-58Source for the running times is the wikipedia article on Running.  Source for the indoor rowing is the concept2 world record page.  These are times for 19-29 male heavyweight rowers.  I understand that this might miss a better record for an older athlete, but I think it tells the story.

World class runners can run about 20% faster than world class rowers can row.
