"Will" does work, Tara, especially since it would seem that this sentence is being spoken before the race. Thus, it seems to be making the prediction that he will win (when the race happens) because he is faster than the other runners who will participate in the race. Here's a context in which "is going to" would be better:

  • He is running faster than anyone in the race. I think he is going to win.

In that variation, the race is actually happening at the time of utterance.

P.S. I am replying here to a post that Tara has deleted.
