travel africa travel# How long can a cheetah maintain 70 miles per hour?

**Cheetahs can**go from 0

**miles per hour**to 60

**miles per hour in**just 3.4 seconds.

**Cheetahs can**reach a top speed anywhere

**in**between 60 and

**70 miles per hour**, depending

**on**the size of the

**cheetah**. But, the interesting thing is that

**cheetahs can**only run that fast

**for**20 to 30 seconds

**long**.

Accordingly, how many miles can a cheetah run per hour?

A **cheetah run** speed **can** get up to 76 **miles per hour**, but they **can** only sustain them for over a distance of approximately 1,500 feet. **Cheetahs can** accelerate at an amazing rate, going from a standstill position to as fast as 68 mph in less than three seconds.

**can jump**20 feet, more than 10 times the length of its body.

Regarding this, what happens if a cheetah runs for too long?

**Cheetahs** can only **run** for upto 30 seconds. And they cover upto 1 km. They know **when** to stop. **If** they don't stop **running**, they will burn up extra calories and their body will heat up more than 40.5 degree celsius and they will faint, and before they fall down to ground due to their high speed, they will be cold again.

**Usain Bolt** vs. The **Cheetah**: Olympians of the Animal Kingdom. A **cheetah** would clock in at 64 mph (104 kph), or about twice as **fast** as the world's top sprinters, while the pronghorn antelope would likely be on the medal stand, pulling out a speed of 55 mph (89 kph).
