As of 18 May 2013, the fastest 800m run (or 800m world record) was done at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, on the 9th of August by David Rudisha of Kenya. Rudisha ran the 800m in 1:40.91, breaking his own world record by ten hundredths of a second (previously 1:41.01). You can watch his awesome run in the video in the related links section.
I have a feeling in the uk it's 1:54 which is crazy!
I'm 13yrs old and I run it in 2.16
Wilson Kipketer of Denmark holds seven of the ten fastest 800m times in history, including his world record of 1.41.11 from 1997.
I've ran the 800m in 2:08 and I'm 13 years old, what's the fastest?
I'm 13 and my best time was 3:00
3-4 minutes give or take. I'm not sure how old this question (and the answers are) but the info isn't at all accurate. From someone who is in the middle of the junior olympic circuit for track, and the father of a 10 year old girl who runs the 800m, I can offer some accuracy here. First off, when you ask what's a good 800m time, I would start with what's good in elementary school meets around the country. In those races, a 3 minute 800m will generally win the race. When you compete regionally and nationally among the fastest 10 year old girls in the country, a 3 minute 800m isn't competitive. In those races, you'll see the very fastest 10 year old girls running 2:30. It should be noted that there are very few of these girls. Then between 2:35 and 2:40 are the next tier of runners. These girls are extremely fast, and arguably elite runners, but they're just a few seconds behind the truly fastest. So a 3 minute 800m is quite good, but it's really relative to the level you want to compare it to.
