Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Different people have different step sizes or strides. You really have to measure by counting steps while walking a measured course. It will also change a little over different terrain.

Most adults are probably between 2.5 feet and 3 foot strides. As there are 5280 feet/mile, this gives between 5280/3 = 1760 steps per mile and 5280/2.5 = 2112 steps per mile. A few people are outside this range.
