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.

This stunning loop up and down the Blue Mountains can be run in either direction, starting anywhere. A lot of research and exploration went into creating an adventure to encapsulate the Blue Mountains: it takes in jaw-dropping views of Mt Solitary, Wentworth Falls and other iconic landscapes; swerves through gorgeous single track and pauses at a picturesque local swimming hole; descends ridgelines with views to the horizon and drops through valleys into rainforests. I chose to start it by running out the back door and straight onto the trail!
Contact me if you would like to have a crack at the route and I'd be happy to share tips and the mistakes I made. An excellent adventure! firstname.lastname@example.org
