## Is it possible to run up a wall?

## How fast do you have to go to run on walls?

To make it 15 yards (or 45 feet) in a single jump during that time, the runner will have to start their jump with a horizontal velocity of 45/1.037 = 43.40 feet/second, or roughly 30 miles per hour! I think their ankles would take quite the beating trying to kick off the wall at that speed.
