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.
Distance:

Hi WWA team, I have come back to WWA this year after a couple of years off and I have to admit, to begin with, I was quite half hearted about walking. Now I have two walking buddies and the pacer to keep me moving. I walk to the shop and post office if I don't have anything heavy to carry back, a 5.8km round trip if I don't take any side trips! It is a pretty simple way to tip my steps over the 10K mark. Thank you for inspiring me and thank you to DayGirl and Stillstriding for keeping me on my toes!
