How Far is 20,000 Steps in Miles?

Before anything else, it’s important to understand the conversion rate between steps and miles. The average adult’s stride length is approximately 2.5 feet. Accordingly, it will take roughly 2000 steps to cover 1 mile. 

However, the difference in conversion rates varies on individual differences in stride length and walking speed. The calculation for 20000 steps to miles can be done using an average conversion rate of 2,000 steps per mile i.e. 20,000 steps / 2,000 steps per mile = 10 miles.

Furthermore, it is also seen that an average person is required to walk 8.5 miles to cover 20,000 steps. And, if running, it is 15 miles.
