How Many Calories Does Running Burn?

According to the American Council, a 120-pound person burns about 11.4 calories per minute while running. So if a person runs 10-minute, he’ll burn 114 calories.

Burning calories running depends a lot on several factors, be it, the weight of the person, the physical condition, the speed at which he runs, the terrain, etc. Due to this, it is not very easy to say how many calories exactly can be burned.

If we leave aside the percentages, we have to say that maximum intensity aerobic exercises promote the burning of calories since they eliminate more fat in less time and also accelerate the metabolism of the person with which they produce a greater expenditure of calories even up to After running. Of course, this depends on the intensity at which you train, but generally, high-intensity training usually generates higher caloric expenditure until the physical recovery of the person occurs.


For all those people who do not have a device that measures the calories burned in the course of their race, today there are different tables that help to measure and keep us informed about how fast to run, how long, etc. As you will see, it all depends on the speed at which we run, the higher the speed the more calories will be burned. In addition, something that is also worth saying is that the greater the weight, the more calories you will be able to burn, this is due to the amount of fat that is stored to burn.
