Enter your total distance and your 500 meters split into the calculator. The ERG calculator will solve for your total time.

ERG Formula

The following formula is used to calculate your total time rowing or running from your total distance and average 500-meter split.

T = D / 500 * 5S
  • Where T is your total time
  • D is your total distance
  • 5S is your 500 meter split.

To calculate the ERG time, divide the distance by 500, then multiply by the 500 meter split.
