Forrest Gump running pace?

There have been previous discussions on how long did Forrest run, and even his probable pace given that the period of time he ran is known (e.g. link). However, I find nowhere an analysis that actually looks at him running (see link below). So, based solely on the actual footage and your experience, what is the most probable pace of Forrest running? My educated guess is 8:26-8:42 min/mi (5:15-5:25 min/km).

(Video here, from 1:30 β€” pay special attention to the seasoned-Gump pace in 3:30 and 5:15).

Edit 1: Thank you very much for so many valuable insights. I am most amazed with the level of dedication in many responses. I am going to digest your analysis and I’ll be back with a conclusion. For now, be sure that someday, somewhere in Spain, Forrest Gump will be brought up in some conversation that I’ll be part of. Somehow, I will come up with his running pace, and you may rest assured that I’ll be quoting your wisdom. Also, gracias for the upvotes and the awards :) Salud.

Edit 2: This investigation turned out to be deeper than I had expected. I am very glad to see that, even when we don't ignore the fact that Forrest Gump is a fictional character and his adventures are dramatizations, this idea of a man (or a woman, doesn't matter) finding a sudden and sincere evasion to so many things by just waking up and running, resonates among many people in this forum. Personally, I find it strangely familiar and attractive, even when I have not tried (yet) to make a 'Forrest' myself. Although I din't explicit so, this post was not meant to judge, evaluate or label Forrest's technique, or even the feasibility of the story, and you did not emit a judgement :)

Now, the numbers (I use both international system and imperial units for non-US/US). Very early on, @Sloe_Burn provided a celebrated answer: measuring the actual dimensions of the Stone Bridge, estimating a pace of 6:04/mi (3:46/km). This is fast! @Mike1767 also did a pretty good, graphical work, deriving something closer to 8:03/mi (4:59/km), however I think there may need perspective-correction, yielding a little bit longer distance (and therefore faster pace). There is this website, which is a database of films locations, that helped me to complement @Sloe_Burn research. I tried to find out the br

The film "Forrest Gump" is worse than mediocre

I'm not certain if this opinion is extremely unpopular or not, but the general audience as well as critics loved this film, so I would say that I'm definitely in the minority.

First of all, the historical events mentioned in the film are presented in a way that is completely devoid of context or even nuance. Yes, I know the film isn't a historical documentary, but it gets real old after the first couple of times. The vast majority of the events and references could be removed completely and the main plot would still be the same. Only Gump's service in the Vietnam War has enough depth, character development, and screen time to justify being included. For everything else, well, it seems like the directors and writers understood as much history as the titular character.

The romance between Forrest and Jenny was presented poorly and personally was not enjoyable to me at all. The film tries to make the audience feel sympathetic to both characters, but I did not like either of them. Jenny constantly sends mixed messages, and Forrest was never able to get over the fact that Jenny doesn't love him the same way he loves her. Character development is not necessary for an enjoyable character, but in this case the lack of thereof is extremely infuriating.

There's a part of the movie where Forrest starts running for no (apparent) reason, and a bunch of people started running along with him even though they didn't know why he was running. His follower expected there to be some sort of explanation, at least a message, but one day Forrest just stops running, and everyone else was confused and disappointed. I feel like that describes the film as a whole pretty well. It's not completely devoid of depth or meaning, but people credit the film with too much depth, much of it probably unintended. Forrest talks a lot, but rarely does he have something of importance to say. At the end of the day, the film is a boring slog through the life of someone who is only interesting because of who he's associated with.

Jenny is not a terrible person in Forrest Gump

It starts the movie off with her explaining her father is physically and sexually abusive to her. It explains that she openly hates what he did to her, and implies she fears she would do it.

Every time she meets Forrest, she is overcome with joy. She clearly loves him throughout the movie, but she clearly doesn't want to hurt him. It's implied heavily that she fears she abusing him much like her father abuses her.

Everytime they meet up, she realizes he's a "simple" man. And she is immediately scared of hurting him. The one time she slept with him, he immediately showed she kinda was. So she leaves him. Over and over. She doesn't want to hurt him.

Forrest understands this, clearly so. Forrest explains several times that his feelings are real for her. That she isn't abusing him. It was only after Jenny clearly got better mentally that she allows herself around Forrest.

It is sad it happened because of Aids.

Jenny is a horribly traumatized person who fears she's just like her abuser.

Growing up, and having been abused as a child myself, I thought the whole point of her character was to show that sexually abused people carry that baggage forever. And our greatest fear is becoming the very monster who hurt others, no matter how untrue that feeling is.

[Forrest Gump] At some point in her wild youth, maybe her early thirties, Jenny's phone number was 867-5309. Yeah: she's THAT Jenny.

The ages about match up. I can't find much info on the songwriters, especially birth dates, but the song was released in about 1981 so it's plausible.

No, the real evidence is the meta-nature of the Forrest Gump universe. The protagonist is linked to so many real-world events and famous people, it seems implausible that he wouldn't be connected to someone as long as the possibility exists. So: it must be true.

Forrest Gump as a modern retelling of The Idiot

Full disclosure, The Idiot is my favorite book and Forrest Gump is my favorite movie. I might be imagining parallels, but I've thought about this a lot.

I'm a little obsessed about the idea of a perfectly Christ-like figure and how they would be treated by the world. It's obvious from Christ's example that the world would reject anyone that fully embodied Christ's teaching.

St. Francis is probably the closest example of a Prince Myshkin in history, but Myshkin isn't explicitly spiritual like a St. Francis. Myshkin embodies the moral teachings of Jesus without mystical trappings.

This leads me to Forrest Gump. He, like Myshkin, is completely self-sacrificing. He never seems to even consider his own will or self-interest. Because of his simple goodness, the world underestimates him. In the end, Forrest doesn't actually receive a reward for his goodness except for the knowledge that Jenny dies in relative happiness. Forrest isn't an idiot, he's actual more in tune with what actually matters in life, just like Myshkin.

Myshkin's story doesn't end as well as Forrest's, but it's Dostoevsky, so I never expect a Hollywood ending.

What do you guys think about this parallel between Myshkin and Forrest?

Forrest Gump is a deeply weird film.

I hadn’t seen this since I was 12 and found it one of the most captivating and moving films I had ever seen. I was in complete tears at the end and deeply affected. In 2021? More interesting as a time capsule of 90’s culturalΒ tastes.

I still find it shocking that Forrest Gump beat out Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank RedemptionΒ for Best Picture in β€˜95. Not as some sort of indictment of quality as there’s a lot I like in it but more just in how strange of a film it is. I understand why some people love it as a moving human interest drama and why others hate the saccharine sentimentality of it because it's kind of both at once. It’s an atonal (but effective?) mix of cynical satire and overly sentimental melodrama from a director that doesn’t really specialise in either. Outside of the VFX innovation it’s difficult to draw lines from this to any of Zemeckis’ otherΒ work.

It watches as a much more different film now than I imagine it did in 1994 and is much more difficult to take at face value. While I’m sure it will continue to age in bizarre and unexpected ways as a whole the dynamic use of VFX and Tom Hanks’ open hearted performance are quite timeless.
