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.

Using only public transport, I've created a point to point taking in the entire 101 miles of the Heart of England Way.
This leg of the journey begins at Stafford station and takes in the riverside areas of the town before heading out to the canal. The Heart of England Way starts on the North-Western edge of Cannock Chase and this section is quite wild, upland commons and heaths. The latter section is mainly woodland and the walk diverts on Marquis Drive in order to head towards Hednesford Station.
Please be careful to observe all signs for rights of way when following other people's routes, as we cannot guarantee that they do not cross private or hazardous land.
We have lots of detailed guides to help you get the most out of plotaroute.com. Here's a selection:
