Time from a Distance in Kilometres and Speed in Metres per Minute

Calculate the time it takes to ride, walk, swim, or run a certain distance in kilometres based on a speed in metres per minute.

Time from Speed and Distance
Metres per Minute/Kilometres

Distance in Kilometres km
Speed in Metres per Minute m/min


Distance in Miles mi
Speed in Feet per Minute ft/min
Time in Minutes min
Time in Decimal Hours hr
Time hour min sec


  1. enter the distance in kilometres
  2. the speed in metres per minute


  1. the distance in kilometres converted to miles
  2. the metres per minute converted to feet per minute
  3. the time in minutes
  4. the time in decimal hours
  5. the time in hour, minute, and second format

time = distance ÷ speed
one kilometre (km) = 0.621371192237334 miles (mi)
one hour (hr) = 60 minutes (min)
one metre per minute (m/mi) =  3.28083989501312 feet per minute (ft/min)
Example Calculation
How long will it take to run 10 kilometres at a speed of 85 metres per minute?
First, convert the 10 kilometres to a distance in metres;
10 * 1000  =  10000
10 kilometres equals 10000  metres

Divide the distance of  10000 metres by the speed of 85 metres per minute to get the time in minutes;
10000 ÷ 85 =  117.647
It will take 117.647 minutes to run the 10 kilometres at a speed of 85 metres per minute.

Convert to decimal hours by dividing by 60 ( there are 60 minutes in one hour);
117.647 ÷ 60 =  1.96078
The time in hours equals 1.96078 hr. 
1 hr - 57 min - 39 sec
