What is 10 miles converted to kilometers in Strava?

Hi! I am joining my first 16-kilometer race this weekend, and would just like to know: what is 10 miles converted to kilometers exactly in Strava? A quick Google calculation says it's 16.0934 km, but there's also a Strava route page that associates 10 miles with 16.2 kilometers. Just want to make sure that my race this weekend will be logged under 10-mile personal best. Thanks!

Hey @awesomedwight,

Thanks for writing this question. To be on the safe side I suggest the 16.2 KM metric for your 10 mile run. Because you're using Strava to track your performance, it may be better to use Strava's metric to achieve your goal.

Also, I recommend tad running a bit further than the 16.2 KM to be sure your performance is included.

Hope you crush your goal!
