In order to use latest systemd, you need to ensure
1) things that depend on systemd also change accordingly
2) optionally get a recent kernel so that features added to systemd 
based on recent improvements on kernels could also be used.


In summary, you need a build system that could build latest systemd (and 
optionally latest kernel) and rebuild other dependencies accordingly.


I'm a yocto developer, and as a playground, I'm using local kernel and 
systemd projects which track the latest upstream kernel and systemd.

Keep in mind that Fedora Rawhide is the development branch of fedora.
If you are open to that, you can just as well also use Debian sid,
which usually get's new systemd releases within a couple of days (e.g.
v239 was realised 22.6.18, uploaded to Debian a couple hours later at
23.6.18).
Those uploads then migrate to Debian testing automatically after a few
days, if no regressions are found.

The fastest any distro is going to get systemd would probably be from a 
bleeding-edge distro (e.g. Fedora Rawhide). If you don't want you system to 
be a disaster zone, though, Arch got systemd 237 just two weeks after release.


Fedora will push systemd releases with their new versions, which come out 
every six months, and I believe non-LTS Ubuntu distros are probably the same.


Anything LTS though (like Ubuntu LTS, Debian, or your own CentOS) is going 
to be the absolute *worst* for getting pretty much anything new...
