Abstract: In this article, we evaluate different factors of performance in long-distance running. Anthropometric measurements, biomechanical and kinematic analyzes obtained using treadmill videos and physiological measurements performed under standardized conditions on athletes allowed us to evaluate variables related to the race to explain the performance achieved during international marathons. Fourteen (14) athletes participated. The goal of this work was to enable Senegalese athletes to better prepare and improve their performance in the hope of finally competing with the world elite. At the end of our study, we have highlighted some essential variables that can allow athletes to improve their level of performance. The results demonstrated that a suspension time of stride must be increased from 0.3 to 0.5 and cushioning time to be reduced from 0.35 to 0.15.
