Fortify Speed or Fortify Athletics?

I am getting Sigil Stones from Oblivion Gates and am wondering if I can run faster with more speed or atheltics. Is there a difference between the two? I know Speed also increases your jumping, but I am asking about running.

I believe Speed increases running by 0.66% and Athletics increases it by only 0.33%.

Typically speed is the better bet. A speed increase of 100 points increases total run speed by (very) roughly 30%. An increase of athletics by 100 points increases total run speed by about 25%.

Combining them gets you just shy of a 50% increase in run speed.

If you are enchanting heavy armor, a feather enchantment is light years better than either for improving speed, because of the encumbrance modifier.
