    About the Calorie Calculator

    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.

Flat with rolling ups and downs for the first three miles, the run goes first through the Wildwood and Hill Canyons. Then, up a short hill to the streets of Thousand Oaks. For several miles, roll through TO before getting back on the trails of the Wildwood open space to head back towards Santa Rosa. A long, rolling section of hills before you hit the downhills of Box Canyon, to the right of Lizard Rock. The entirety of the run is even terrain, wide enough for 2 or more runners.
    Down box canyon, a quick block around a neighborhood and you'll be heading back through the open fields toward your car.
