Running Calorie Calculator for Calculating Run Calories Burned

Running Calorie Calculator Sign

This calculator will help you to calculate the number of calories you will burn while running or jogging, based on the Running category of the Compendium of Physical Activities: An update of activity codes and MET intensities. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 2000;32 (Suppl):S498-S516.

Plus, the calculator will estimate your weight loss (pounds or kilograms) for each running type and pace and includes a feature that allows you to print out a custom list of running types and paces.


If you are interested in calculating calories burned for all types of exercise activities, you can use the Exercise Calorie Burn Calculator. Or, if you would like to calculate calories for a vast array of activities, use the Activities Calorie Calculator, which includes over 600 activities.

Please keep in mind that the actual number of calories burned during running and jogging depends on your body composition, your metabolism rate, and on how many calories you consume. Furthermore, be sure to change up your running or jogging routine periodically as your body will become accustomed to the same routine over time -- resulting in fewer calories burned.

Finally, this calculator does not apply to children or women who are pregnant, and as always, be sure to consult with your qualified health professional before beginning any new strength and conditioning program.

If a Data Record is currently selected in the "Data" tab, this line will list the name you gave to that data record. If no data record is selected, or you have no entries stored for this calculator, the line will display "None".

Select your desired measurement (pounds or kilograms) and enter your weight. Please note that since the calories burned is dependent upon your weight, any changes to your entered weight will automatically reset/clear the lower section of the calculator.

Default time duration:

Enter the number of hours and/or minutes you want the calculator to use for calculating the calories burned for each running type and pace. You will be able to change the default duration for any individual type and pace once the calculator performs its initial calculations.

Running and Jogging Paces

Running and Jogging Paces:

After clicking the "Calculate Calories Burned" button, each of the running type and paces below will be populated with the default duration time. You can then adjust the hours, minutes, and repetitions for each running or jogging activity in the scrollable list, and the calculator will then automatically recalculate the calories and weight loss for that duration.

If you would like to print out a custom selection of the running types and paces, tap the checkbox next each desired running type to place a checkmark in it, then click the "Printable Checked List" button. This will open a window containing a printer-friendly version of your selected routines.

If you would like to save the current entries to the secure online database, tap or click on the Data tab, select "New Data Record", give the data record a name, then tap or click the Save button. To save changes to previously saved entries, simply tap the Save button. Please select and "Clear" any data records you no longer need.

Help and Tools


Calculator to calculate running calories based on weight and distance.

Running Distance Calorie Calculator

The following calculator bases the running calories burned on weight and distance rather than on weight and intensity level. This version will tell you how many calories you will burn running a mile, 2 miles, 5 miles, a 5Km, a 10Km, a half marathon, a marathon, or any other standard or metric distance.

Adjust Calculator Width:

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".

Show/Hide Popup Keypads:

Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.

Stick/Unstick Tools:

Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.

If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
