In response to a previous topic asking how many steps are needed to walk a mile....

Measure (in metres) the length of one average step from the front of one foot to the front of the other foot)
e.g. my step measures 72cm which is 0.72 metres.

Steps per mile = 1609 divided by length of one step
Steps per km = 1000 divided by length of one step

Mine is approx 2235 steps per mile and 1389 steps per km.


To work out how many miles / km you have walked in a day divide the total number of steps for the day by the number of your steps in a mile / kilometre.
