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.

Felt so pleased with myself yesterday. Have started running for my interval walks and actually ran 16 minutes out of 30! I've broken the 50% mark! I got around my normal circuit in 47 minutes instead of closer to 60!

I was so looking forward to the end of daylight saving so I could walk in the daylight (at least on the way home), but have just found out I have to wait another week :(
