Walking is a great way to stay fit and active, but have you ever wondered just how far you've walked after taking a certain number of steps? With 8,735 steps, you've covered an impressive distance! To be more precise, this number of steps equates to roughly 4.14 miles.
How is this calculation made, you may ask? The answer lies in the average stride length of a person. Your stride length is the distance between the heel of one foot and the heel of the other foot as you take a step. Typically, this distance varies based on your height, with taller people having longer stride lengths.
On average, a person's stride length is roughly 2.5 feet or 30 inches. However, this can vary depending on factors such as age, gender, and physical condition. To calculate how many steps are in a mile, we need to divide the number of feet in a mile (5,280) by the average stride length. This gives us roughly 2,112 steps per mile. From there, we can calculate that 8,735 steps are equivalent to approximately 4.14 miles.
