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.

Hey all,
I am finally back walking to work etc since falling in that sprinkler hole on the way to work. The foot finally looks pink instead of black and my fingers can type again. I am itching to get back in the top 50 and to the top of the challenge. I also leave for 3 weeks holiday traveling around the South island NZ in about 9 days so look forward to seeing all the sites that WWA sends me. Its amazing how motivating this site is when you get going and how dissappointing it is when something happens to stop you continueing.
