Running is one of the best exercises that burn calories fast.
Running for an hour every day will keep your body in good shape,
and also keeps your heart and brain in a healthy condition.
Be sure to stretch, warm up, and wear a pair of comfortable shoes before running.
Breathing evenly during the running period also helps burn calories.
On average, it burns 533 kcal to 762 kcal by running an hour at general speed for people weighing between 140 and 200 lbs.
It burns more calories at a faster speed, and a person who weighs more also burns more calories per minute at the same speed.
How to Calculate Running Calorie Burn
To calculate the running calorie burn, use the following formula:
MET x Body Weight x 3.5 / 200 x time, where
Body weight unit = kg
Time unit = minutes
The MET values are different for different running speeds, varying from 7 to 18, the faster running speed requires more energy, and it has a greater MET value.
Running Calorie Burn Calculation Example
For example, if a person weighs 180 pounds (81.65 kg) and runs for an hour at a running speed of about 8.5 min per mile.
The MET value is 11.5.
Therefore the calculation is:
11.5 (MET) x 81.65 kg x 3.5 / 200 x 60 (Minutes) = 985 kcal.
This running calories burn calculator uses a MET value of 8 for running at general speed.
For a person who weighs 170 pounds and runs for 30 minutes, it burns about 324 kcal.
The calculation is:
8 (MET) x 77.11 kg x 3.5 / 200 x 30 (Minutes) = 324 kcal.
