How to Find Your Pace for a Marathon, 5K, or 10K Run

Finding the pace you need to run to hit a time in your race or calculating your stride in a race is easy if you have the total running time and total distance. Pace, also referred to as clip or stride, is a measure of speed, or rather the time it takes to travel a specified distance.

Start by converting the running time into seconds. This can be done by adding seconds with minutes multiplied by 60 and hours multiplied by 3600.

Next divide the total time in seconds by the total distance. This is the pace in seconds. If the distance is in miles then the result is per mile, if distance is in kilometers than it is per kilometer.

Finally, convert the pace in seconds to hours, minutes, and seconds format. To find the minutes, divide the number of seconds by 60. The minutes will be the numbers to the left of the decimal point. To find the number of seconds after finding minutes, subtract the number of minutes × 60 from the pace in seconds. Our seconds time conversion calculator can help convert seconds to another format.

Example: If the pace is 450 seconds per mile.

minutes = 450 ÷ 60
minutes = 7.5
minutes = 7
seconds = 450 – (7 × 60)
seconds = 450 – 420
seconds = 30
time = 7:30

How to Estimate How Far You’ve Run

You can find the distance you’ve gone if you know your pace and the total time. To calculate the distance run, simply divide the pace in seconds by the total time in seconds. The result is the distance traveled.

Example: If the pace is 7:30 per mile and the total time is 15:00, convert 7:30 into seconds and 15:00 into seconds, then divide by the total time.

7:30 = 450 seconds
15:00 = 900 seconds
900 / 450 = 2 miles

How to Get Your Total Running Time Using Pace and Distance

The total time run can be found using the pace and distance traveled. Convert the pace into seconds, then multiply by the total distance to find the elapsed time.

Example: If the pace is 7:30 per mile and the distance is 2 miles, convert 7:30 into seconds, then multiply by 2.

7:30 = 450 seconds
450 × 2 = 900 seconds

Use the method above to convert seconds into time.
