The Ranga, or Full Pace, was a Númenórean linear measure. It was slightly longer than a yard, measuring 38 inches (3'2", or 95 centimetres). In the later days, when the stature of the Númenóreans decreased, two Rangar was called "man-high," meaning that the average Man was 6'4" or thereabouts.

The Ranga was said to be a full stride from the rear heel to the front toe, by a fullgrown Númenórean man in quick march. 5000 Rangar made up a Lár.
