Stair climbing



How do I transfer flights of stairs climb to miles. I started climbing the stairs at work and would like to convert it to miles.

1 flight of stairs has 24 steps.


The standard rise on most stairs is 17″. 

24 steps x 17″ = 408″ per flight of stairs

1 mile = 63,360 inches

63,360/408 = 155 flights = 3,720 steps to get to a mile.
