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.

Enjoy this challenging 5K in Downtown RVA! You will depart the Omni then head to the James River to experience the beauty of the only Class IV rapids in an Urban Center. The path then takes you by the American Civil War Museum. Then it's an uphill run on 2nd Street before turning right on Main Street. Take note of Capital Ale House location for your client dinner or drinks location! Nearly done! Turn right on 10th Street then right on Cary Street and your back at the Omni! Enjoy
