### How many miles are 10000 steps?

Depends on how tall you are. I am about 5 feet 8 inches, and
each step averages to 40 cm from toe to toe. That means that for
me, each step is 0.4 meters. 1 km = 4000 steps, 1 mile = 6435
steps. They say you should take 10,000 steps per day. For me that
would equal to 2.5 km or 1.6 miles. It's basically equal to a 1
hour walk assuming 100 steps per minute are taken. Every 15
seconds, I take 26 steps. 3 km/ hour, 4.15 calories per minute for
160 lbs. To get the benefits of physical activity, you must expend
700 to 800 calories in physical work. Three 1-hour walks would do
that.
