Enter the total time taken and distance covered into the calculator to determine the time per mile. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Time Per Mile Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the time per mile.

TPM = T / D


  • TPM is the time per mile (minutes)
  • T is the total time taken (minutes)
  • D is the distance covered (miles)

To calculate the time per mile, divide the total time taken by the distance covered. The result will be the time it takes to cover one mile. This can be used to gauge an athlete’s speed and endurance, and track improvement over time.

What is Time Per Mile?

Time per mile is a measure of speed commonly used in running or other athletic activities. It refers to the amount of time it takes for an individual to cover a distance of one mile. This measurement is often used to gauge an athlete’s speed and endurance, and can be used to track improvement over time. It is typically expressed in minutes and seconds (for example, a 6-minute mile).

How to Calculate Time Per Mile?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Time Per Mile (TPM).

  1. First, determine the total time taken (T) in minutes.
  2. Next, determine the distance covered (D) in miles.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TPM = T / D.
  4. Finally, calculate the Time Per Mile (TPM).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total time taken (T) = 60 minutes

distance covered (D) = 5 miles
