The average person walks the equivalent of five times around the world in their lifetime.


The average person, with an average stride, living until 80 years old, will walk the distance of about 110,000 miles. To put this in perspective, the circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles at the equator. This means that you would walk FIVE times around the Earth!

Normal, healthy people in areas not marked by desert environments might walk as much as 5 miles without needing to take a rest, but the biggest danger for anybody who wants to walk distances as long as a 26.2 mile marathon is doing this without any water to replenish yourself.

20 millions steps
It takes about 20 millions steps to walk around the world, several years commitment as well as determination, stamina, and a state of mind that few of us can imagine.

The average American walks 3,000 to 4,000 steps a day, or roughly 1.5 to 2 miles. It's a good idea to find out how many steps a day you walk now, as your own baseline. Then you can work up toward the goal of 10,000 steps by aiming to add 1,000 extra steps a day every two weeks.

The average person walks about 2,000 steps a day -- which means an additional 30 miles a month -- making your combined walking 100 miles. What about 10,000 steps? You may have heard the buzz about walking 10,000 steps a day.

3.5mph
The energising walk

 What's important is to make sure you're walking at 3.5mph, which means covering a mile in 17 minutes, including low hills.

It takes 80 minutes to walk 8,000 steps (4 miles) at an average pace. At 10,000 steps per day, it would take you 100 days to walk one million steps. It takes about 100 minutes to walk 10,000 steps (5 miles) at an average pace. At 20,000 steps per day, it would take you 50 days to walk one million steps.

The suspected longest walking route on Earth is 14,000 miles from South Africa to extreme north Russia

Fifty years ago, Dave Kunst began traversing the globe by foot from Waseca to set a world record, joined by his brothers, a handful of mules, and an Australian teacher.
