Verywell 

The United States is one of the only countries in the world that still uses miles instead of kilometers. If you're an American, you probably have a good sense of how long it takes you to walk a mile (about 20 minutes at an easy pace). But most walking routes and runs are described in kilometers. Use these charts to calculate your time and distance in both miles and kilometers.

Conversion Tools

In order to convert your walking distance in miles to kilometers, you can do some simple math using these equations:

  • 1 mile equals 1.6 kilometers: miles x 1.6 = kilometers
  • 1 kilometer equals 0.62 miles: kilometers x 0.62 = miles

You can also look it up your distance on the charts below, which range from a quarter mile to the marathon distance of 26.2. Or you can also use this calculator.

Distance and Pace Charts

There are plenty of apps and gadgets that can help you to determine your pace and distance. You can also use these charts to figure out how long it might take you to walk different distances based on your pace category.

Your actual pace in these categories will depend on your sex, weight, and other factors.

  • Easy pace: 20 minutes per mile or 12.5 minutes per kilometer.
  • Moderate pace: 15 minutes per mile or 9.4 minutes per kilometer. This is a healthy brisk walking pace.
  • Fast pace: 11 minutes per mile or 7 minutes per kilometer. This is the speed of a fast walk or an easy run.

5K to 10K

The 3.1-mile distance equals the 5K distance of many walks you may participate in for charity or for fun. As you see, you can walk it in an hour or less.

The 6.2-mile distance is a good distance to try if you're thinking about doing a half or full marathon one day. This is also the distance for Volkssport walks. It takes about 2 hours or less.​

This chart begins at a distance just slightly longer than a 5K and provides data for up to a 10K distance.

10K to Half Marathon

The half marathon distance of 13.1 miles is just over 21 kilometers. You will want to choose a walker-friendly one or you'll arrive at the finish line hours after the runners have eaten all of the finish line goodies and gone home.​

This chart begins at a distance just slightly longer than a 10K and provides data for up to a half marathon distance.
