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 is a free run on the first day off of the each month. Starting 0630 at the Colin Penridge Park in Whitfield. Where all levels of runners enjoy the very diverse rainforest run and a coffee at the bakery when finished. It is a favourite of Cairns Trail Runners. A warm up and loosen up on the slightly down hill road past the Cairns Botanical Gardens. Then it is into the rainforest. Firstly on well kept, high traffic single track. Then up into the dense forest with technical hill running. Once you reach the turn off to the Green Arrow. It is all down hill fun. Where you can run as fast as you like. Lots of zig zagging switch backs. Ending back in the park.
