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.

Every morning I get up and check out where I am on the 50 top walkers! This slipping up the scale or down the scale,keeps me moving to see if I can improve. One day someone put in the wrong amount for 1st place(100,00kms for the week) and I thought, damn I will never be able to get to first now. Thank goodness they fixed it!!!!!!
I love this site and how it motivates me. I feel I know the people who walk each week and always check out how far they have gone.
Best thing that has happened to me.
