The official VDOT Running Calculator, designed by Dr. Jack Daniels - named World's Best Running Coach by Runner's World Magazine - and the team at VDOT O2.

Thanks to over 50 years of scientific research conducted by legendary coach Dr. Jack Daniels, runners and coaches can quickly determine appropriate training paces, equate race performances and adjust for heat and altitude.

• Calculate time, distance and race paces
• Calculate your current training paces
• Calculate and compare the equivalent performances of a race result at other distances
• Calculate the effect of temperature or altitude on training and race paces

What's Your VDOT?

VDOT is a measure of your current running ability. It assigns a score to all running performances, let's you determine your current training paces, and equates a race time in one distance to another. For instance, you can compare your VDOT score from a recent 5k result to a friend's score who just ran a half marathon. Who won?

What VDOT Level Have You Reached?

Input a race result or estimated performance and learn what score it reaches on the VDOT scale. Enter all your past performances to see which race result scores the highest. There are 10 levels starting at Beginner - White (Female: 34.3, Male: 36.8) all the way up to Professional - Gold (Female: 71, Male: 80).

Does its job and does it well, but one suggestion...

Great app and seamless to use.

My only suggestion and wishlist for this app would be to add 6k and 8k to the list of common distances (as I believe the 1600 and 1500 were added not that long ago?) as to make it a little easier instead of having to custom distance those every time for the collegiate users out there and these being two standard cross country distances.

Otherwise thank you for all the hard work you’ve put into making this app what it is!

We've added 6k & 8k distances!

Cannot see definitions

This app doesn’t allow you to see their definitions of their workouts, making the times it calculates almost useless. If this would be fixed I would rate it a 5!

They got back to me and fixed the problem. 5/5

Developer Response ,

This was due to an issue with the latest iPhone. We went in and fixed this issue. Can you update to the latest version and let us know if you have any problems? If so- you're welcome to email info@vdoto2.com if you have any problems and we will get back to you ASAP.

VDOT Calculator

It may not be perfect, and in some ways dependent on the training you do. But it does give some important clues on training and ability. It is an excellent tool, even though at times imperfect in its results.
