Time from a Distance in Miles and Speed in Metres per Second

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

Time from Speed and Distance
Metres per Second/Miles

Distance in Miles mi
Speed in Metres per Second m/sec


Distance in Kilometres km
Speed in Feet per Second ft/sec
Time in Seconds min
Time in Decimal Hours hr
Time hour min sec


  1. enter the distance in miles
  2. the speed in metres per second


  1. the distance in miles converted to kilometres
  2. the metres per second converted to feet per second
  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 mile (mi) = 1609.344 metres (m)
one mile (mi) = 1.609344  kilometres (km)
one hour (hr) = 3600 seconds (sec)
one metre per minute (m/sec) =  3.28083989501312 feet per minute (ft/sec)
Example Calculation
How long will it take to run 10 miles at a speed of 2 metres per second?
First, convert the 15 miles to a distance in metres;
10 * 1609.344 =  16093.44
10 miles equals 16093.44  metres

Divide the distance of  16093.44 metres by the speed of 2 metres per second to get the time in seconds;
16093.44 ÷ 2 =  8046.72
It will take 8046.72  seconds to run the 10 miles at a speed of 2 metres per second.

Convert to decimal hours by dividing by 3600 (there are 3600 seconds in one hour);
8046.72  ÷ 3600  = 2.2352
The time in hours equals 2.2352 hr. =  2 hr - 14 min - 7 sec
