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.

What Our Members Say

I joined this web site 3 weeks ago. It is such a motivator. Since joining I have been going to the gym at least three times a week, I make sure I get in at least one good walk or run a day as well. I have also went out and brough a treadmill so that I can still excersice when it is dark and rainy. I love the standings tally and I am always looking to see if I am moving up the tally or if I have to work a bit harder for that day. I don't like being out of the top 20.
Great work guys. I love the work that is put into making this website interesting.
