Dear all

I am looking for up-to-date estimates of stride length for children and
adults in the UK. I wonder if anyone has any they could share with me.
It's very simple - I just need to know the stride of e.g. an average 4yr
old, or 6yr old, or whatever; and adult values.

I have already that a 4yr old is .54-1.04m (95% limits) and a male adult
is 1.25-1.85m - does that sound reasonable?

Hope to hear from you soon - thanks for reading
