    [your bodyweight in pounds]*1.5 would be a safe assumption.

    The algorithms they use on treadmills is approximately [bodyweight]*0.75. Also, speed makes a negligable difference, so it doesn't really matter how quickly you can do it.

    your saying body weight multiplied by 1.5? the logarithms part threw me off.
    would this be right for example:150lbs. x 1.5 = 225 calories?

    Algorithm, not logarithm. Algorithm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And yes, it would be about 225 Calories.

    Oh, there's about a million different variables that will tweak the total number of calories burned (length of limbs, running form, bodytemperature, type of shoes, etc). This 0.75*distance*bodyweight trick isn't the most accurate thing in the world, but I think it makes a good rule of thumb

    Hey, glad I could help.

    Calories are really such an insignificant amount of energy, a ballpark estimate will always suffice.
