How many steps have I walked/run?
You may have returned from a walk or run and calculated that you've travelled a set number of miles. What you may now be wondering is how many steps you've walked or run for that number of miles. It is for this purpose that we've created this calculator.
We can, of course, work out a very generalised figure based upon the 'average' calculation for steps to miles - it is said that the average human takes around 2,000 steps to walk a mile. However, this won't be terribly accurate, because calculating an accurate figure for the number of steps you take to walk or run a mile requires you to take into account for a number of different factors, including your gender, height, weight and walking/running pace. As a very crude example, a person of short stature will take many more steps to walk a mile than a 7ft tall giant.
More explanation of how to manually calculate individual miles and steps calculations can be found in our article, How many steps are in a mile?, along with tables of data referenced from studies on the subject.
Our calculators, and the chart below, reference data from a 2008 research study, One-mile step count at walking and running speeds, published in ACSM's Health & Fitness Journal. The study concentrated on the number of steps people took at varying speeds of walking and running. It should be noted that all those who took part in the study were regarded as being of 'normal weight'.
- Slow walk at 3mph: 1 mile = 2,252 steps
- Brisk walk at 4mph: 1 mile = 1,935 steps
- Jog at 5mph: 1 mile = 1,951 steps
- Run at 6mph: 1 mile = 1,672 steps
- Fast run at 7.5mph: 1 mile = 1,400 steps
- Very fast run at 10mph: 1 mile = 1,080 steps
Using this data, we can produce the following table of conversions for miles to steps.
