RE: What would the average man's 100m time be after a year of sprint training?

I found that the general public could run unattached in some college meets. For me, this was a chance to experience the college track season I've never had. There were tons of hobby joggers running your local road races, but why were there hardly any hobby sprinters running in these meets?

Marketing. Lots of people know that you can run 5Ks, 10Ks, and marathons. Very few people know that you can hop into some college track meets and compete against college athletes.

Bragging rights is another reason. Saying you ran a 12 second 100 doesn't sound as impressive to the average person as saying you ran a 4 hour marathon.
