# How many calories do you burn running?

This calculator computes the calories burned according to the way you walk and the time spent in minutes. Using the running calories burned calculator below, you just need to fill some data and get the value of calories burned in Kcal.

## How to calculate calories (burned)

The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:

- the exercise you do
- your weight
- the time spent doing the activity

By multiplying the body weight in kg by the MET ^{(*)} value and duration of activity, you can estimate the energy expenditure in Kcal specific to a persons body weight. In this example, at a MET value, burns Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A kg individual for minutes expends the following:

( METs x kg body weight) x ( min/60 min) = Kcal.

is the value in METs for .

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
