Enter any two values to calculate the third:

You can calculate your running pace for kilometers or miles by choosing the unit in the ‘Unit of measurement’ menu.
Example: Calculate Your Running Pace
Calculate your running pace. Divide the distance you ran with your running time.
If you want to run a half marathon under two hours, enter 2 hours and 0 minutes to Time and and choose half marathon for Distance. When you click Calculate pace, you’ll get your Pace per kilometer/mile. So, to run a half marathon under two hours, you’d need to run faster than 5:41 per kilometer, or 9:09 per mile.
Example: calculate running finish time
Calculate your running time. Multiply your running pace with the distance you ran.
Let’s say you know you can run comfortably at 7 minutes per kilometer and you want to know how long a 10K run would take at that pace. Enter 7 minutes per kilometer to Pace and enter 10 kilometers to Distance. You can also choose 10K from the ‘Select an event’ drop-down menu.
When you click Calculate time, the calculator will show you your finish time. Ten kilometers at a 7 min/km pace would take you 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Real Life vs. the Running Pace Calculator
When you use the running pace calculator, keep in mind that running is not mathematics.
Elite runners may be able to maintain their pace for several hours. If you’re a less experienced runner, running at a pre-specified pace will get harder as you get tired.
So, a word of caution: don’t estimate your marathon time based on your 100m personal best. Or your 10K finish time based on your 5K pace, for that matter.
And you don’t have to settle for estimations: Track your runs with a premium sports watch to get real-life running data, including pace, distance and more.
