Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Bear Lake Marathon Trifecta at Garden City:
CAUTION All routes are open to traffic. Obey pedestrian rules of the road unless instructed by a police officer or volunteer otherwise. You are responsible for your own safety.
Starting at Water's Edge Resort by the 4-way stop in Garden City, athletes cross hwy 89 and follow markings and volunteer instructions out of town on jogging path. First 5 miles, mostly paved with hard packed dirt shoulders. Mild rolling hills throughout this part of course.
Off Sweetwater, take a hard right through a trailer community to a rural, unpaved trail. This scenic byway offers some beautiful and challenging terrain for approximately 2 miles. Off-road running conditions apply.
To avoid heavy highway traffic, marathoners will turn toward peaceful Meadowville valley area, running between rustic mountains past working farms and ranches. Yield to animals and watch for heavy equipment (if dogs are present, you may want to walk past them). There is a peacock and turkey farm near the full marathon turning point.
*Mixed pavement and off-road. 500 foot elevation gain and drop miles 6-8 and 19-21. Full sun.
Porta-potty at mile 1.5, 5, 8.5, 11.
