Converting Steps Into Mileage One mile is 5280 feet. The average stride varies from about two to three feet (two for women, three for men). With a two-foot stride, you would walk a mile in 2640 steps. With a stride of three-feet, it would only take 1760 steps. This is quite a bit of difference. If you really want to know how many steps you need to take to walk one mile, you should measure your own stride. There are several ways to measure your stride length. Here is one way: Measure a length of twenty feet that you can walk. Start a few steps before the beginning of your 20-foot length to get into your walking rhythm and then count the steps you take from the beginning of the length until one of your feet crosses the “finish” line. Do this three or four times, and then find the average of all those trials. For example: Trial 1 --- 13 steps Trial 2 --- 14 steps Trial 3 --- 11 steps Trial 4 --- 13 steps Add the total steps and divide by 4. In this case, 13 + 14 + 11 + 13 = 51. Divide 51 by 4 and you get 12.7, which can be rounded up to 13.
