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.

What are you doing to me? After joining just three days ago I am averaging around 14000 steps (usually around 10000 steps) and am chasing the next checkpoint. You have not only inspired me to get off the couch but also to try new exercise classes. yesterday I tried a body balance class - boy do I feel it today. Thankyou for a wonderful and inspirational site. Ninno, UK
