Stride Length Calculator

Our stride length calculator can determine to what extent you can cover ground in one step. It didn't end here - Our calculator also informs you how many calories you have burned with each stride and equates your output with the average global result.

What is Stride Length?

The distance covered by your foot in each step is known as the stride length.


Formula of Stride Length Calculator

Determining the stride length covered by your foot is very simple! You have to divide the distance covered by the number of moves/steps you have taken:

stride length = distance covered by an object / number of steps taken by an object

Average Human's Stride Length

The average stride length of a person mostly depends on height and sex. However, the standard expected value, efficient on the most male population, is 2.5 feet, and for females, it is 2.2 feet.


To calculate lean body mass, you can use our Lean Body Mass Calculator.


For better understanding, let's solve an example below:

Suppose a four-year-old child covered 100m of distance in 185 steps, then determine the child's stride length.

Given data

Distance covered by a child = 100 m = 10000 cm
Number of steps taken by a child = 185 steps

To Find

The stride length of that child = ?


By using the formula of stride length, we will solve this example.

stride length = distance covered by an object / number of steps taken by an object

Putting values in the above equation

stride length = 10000cm / 185step
stride length = 54cm

The stride length covered by a child is 54 cm which is shorter than an average (2.5 feet ≈ 76 cm)
