Yes because they take bigger steps than shorter people.

Typically yes, although that is not always true. Taller people normally have long legs which means they take larger steps (or, as is the case with me, they may take 'strides' instead of steps). Shorter people do sometimes walk faster though because they take more steps at a faster pace and thus cover more ground. It honestly just depends on the person.

### Can a tall person walk further than a shorter person?

If your talking about steps yes. But my science teacher said shorter and leaner people can run faster and longer than the taller and bigger people because they have smaller steps= faster and more coordinated steps on the other hand, taller and bigger people have more weight to carry around if it's bone mass or just (sorry if I offend anybody) fat Hope I helped!!
