    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.

    About

    The Pen y Fan Horseshoe. This is a great classic walk of south Wales and the Brecon Beacons. It starts at the head of the beautiful Pentwyn reservoir. It heads up on stunning ridge line and takes in the summits of Corn Du 873 m, Pen y Fan 886 m and Cribyn 795 m.

    This is a great introduction to the Brecon Beacons National Park but it can get busy on clear summer days.
