MapMyRun is closer to what it says on my Garmin than Sparkpeople. I just use the watch and then enter in my calories manually.

But pace can change the amount of calories burned pretty significantly, as well as the weight of the person doing the exercise.
I have the same problem with different calculators telling me different numbers (sometimes up to 200calories difference). I think taking the average would be best, or going with the lower number just to be safe.

I've used both. After running for a long while, I've pretty much averaged on a normal run, 100 cals/10 mins/mile. You could also plug your run into both and average the numbers and see what you get then.

I am trying to burn 300 calories a day. It gives me a realistic goal. Does anyone use MapMyRun and if you do which calorie count is more accurate MapMyRun or Sparkpeople Calorie Calculator? It is different by 50-75 calories sometimes. I am just looking for information. I know everyone burns differently and a HRM is out of the question this month financially. Any info would be appreciated!
