Spike's Calculators

Running Speed from Distance in Metres

Calculate the average running speed from the total distance of run in metres and the elapsed time of a run.

This calculator's running speed results are in metres per second and converted to kilometres and miles per hour.

Example Calculation
```run distance = 100 metres
elapsed time = 17.34 seconds```
`First, divide the distance by the amount of time to get the speed per second;`
`100 ÷ 17.34 = 5.7670126874279123414071510957324 rounded to 5.767.`
`Your running pace is 5.767 metres per second.`
Convert to kilometres per hour
```one hour = minutes
one minute = 60 seconds```
`60 * 60 = 3600`
`There are 3600 seconds in one hour`
`one kilometre = 1000 metres`
`Divide the time(seconds) by distance(metres);`
`3600 ÷ 1000 = 3.6`
`To convert to kilometres per hour, multiply the metres per second by 3.6`
`5.767 * 3.6 = 20.761`
