We were told that it's approximately 2,000 steps per mile. How long your stride is and how big your feet are can make a difference...some pedometers compensate for that...but the general idea is 2,000/mile. So the healthy goal is 5 miles a day (10,000 steps).

It really depends on the length of your stride.... do a small measure and multiply it out. I am a metric chicky so can't help with the math
