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.

Hi everyone

I just joined this site this morning, and am finding it inspirational so far. I normally walk about 4-6000 steps per day, but today I broke the 10000! First time in ages!

How did I do it? Well, sad to say I'm a smoker. Today when I walked outside for a smoke, I decided instead of sitting in the smokers area, that I would walk while I had my smoke. I walked as fast as I comfortably could for the entire time of smoking the cigarette, when I walked back inside, I took the stairs and once I got back to my desk, realised I had added 1000 steps to my count! This took me 15 minutes all up, and I go for 4 smokes a day - so there was my extra 4000 steps a day :)

I know I will have to stop using the bad habit of having a cigarette to get my steps in the future, but for now I think its great.

Thanks for that extra inspiration!
