Stride Length Calculator

  1. Measure a distance (we recommend no less than 9 meters / 30 ft) OR find a known distance on the road or in your back garden.
  2. Count your steps as you walk that distance - try to keep to your normal walking pace. Jot down the distance and steps you took.
  3. If you would like to know your running/jogging stride as well - repeat step 2 but do so whilst running at your normal pace.
  4. Now, enter the distance and your walking and/or running steps into our calculator to find out what your step length is.

I'm into week 34 of weight watchers and lost 24.5kg with 16kg to go and this is exactly what I need for the next phase of my exercise program. I use my treadmill every day if not twice but now it has that much more meaning. I am trying to avg 16000 steps so this really helps. Love the concept & web site and I look fwd to many months of being challenged.
