How to Convert Kilometers to Yards

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

To convert a kilometer measurement to a yard measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One kilometer is equal to 1,093.613298 yards, so use this simple formula to convert:

yards = kilometers × 1,093.613298

The length in yards is equal to the kilometers multiplied by 1,093.613298.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilometers to yards using the formula above.
5 km = (5 × 1,093.613298) = 5,468.066492 yd

Kilometers and yards are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilometers

One kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters, which are defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/299,792,458 second time interval.[1]

The kilometer, or kilometre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilometers can be abbreviated as km, for example 1 kilometer can be written as 1 km.

Yards

The yard is a unit of length measurement equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. The international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters.

The yard is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Yards can be abbreviated as yd, for example 1 yard can be written as 1 yd.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.

If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers, which include both imperial and metric measurements.
