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.

Training for a 5k? This is the perfect route. An smooth start from the Keith Family YMCA down the easy slope of Mallard Creek Road to the Mallard Creek Greenway. Enjoy the scenic trail because once you exit the Greenway in Harrington Woods, the Hill of Destruction will challenge you as you battle up to the top. Your reward will be a lovely flat finish back to the YMCA! Beginners may want to reverse the route until you are ready to be the master of your hills.
