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.

Some great views over the South Downs along the first section of the South Downs way to East Meon and of course from Butser Hill. This route took around 3 hours taking it fairly easy. Allow 3.5 hours if you really want to spend a little time walking around the top of Butser Hill. I parked in the Sustainability Centre to do this walk however do ask in the reception if its OK to park there. They seem to have no issues if theres no events such as weddings on there that day.
