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 point to point walk roughly follows the route of the Cannock Heritage Trail. Starting in Cannock and winding through the old industrial town of Hednesford, the walk quickly opens out into Chase territory!
With forests, ponds, heathland and isolated open country, this beautiful route feels like somewhere a million miles from the West Midlands. The end heads into Rugeley, where trains will take you back to the start in Cannock.
For a nice sunny pint, detour off to Silting Mill. If you fancy a shorter walk, alight at Hednesford and pick up the trail straight onto Cannock Chase.
