When a cheetah is running in short bursts, it can reach speeds of 75 miles per hour. The range is closer to 68 and 75 miles an hour, though. Running in short bursts helps the cheetah keep its energy for the times when it really needs to run. It’s the fastest animal on the planet with this speed, and therefore, clocks in at the top of the list for animals that no one can outrun.

The fastest, most accurate land speed record for a cheetah in captivity has been 64 miles per hour. However, this was the average of three runs with rests between the runs. So, it remains very possible that an average speed between 70 and 75 miles per hour is likely, but rarer than something below 70.
