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.

Let's start with an admission. This walk was devised by my very dear friend Emma. Not only have I stolen her route I've asked her to take a days holiday to walk with us. Many of the following words are her's.
This is a charity 5 mile walk to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK.
Because of the rule of 6 we invite you to take part by walking it in your own time or walk it around a similar time as us while observing all social distancing rules. Just keep in little groups (if I'm in any doubt we'll claim we have no idea who you are). Should you be at all interested, are starting the walk at 10am on the 15th October 2020
All we ask is a donation of your choice (at least a tenner) to Emma's Just Giving page at: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cornwallwalkstogether
Emma has already been a great support to Tricia and I for she too has been on this journey. For further information about the cause, visit her blog at: www.memoriesofmarty.co.uk/never-tooo-young
Don't forget to find the treasure marked on the map!
Walk the route at low tide.
(and now Neil)
