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 jokeep, Worsley, I have just read your comment. Let me put you on notice that you will have to try even harder to beat me! I have decided it is now or never and 2011 is going to be my year. To celebrate turning 60 in 2011 I plan to run the Bunbury Full Marathon in May, my first ever. So providing all goes well and no broken legs, then 2011 will be my year! This year I will do the Bunbury Half Marathon in May and the Elleker Half Marathon in June. Keep it up Jo. Keep walking! Catch me if you can!
