How much does the speed you run at matter?
Your weight, running distance and speed have the biggest impact on how many calories you burn running.
For example about 155 calories per mile are burned for an 200 pound person running at 10 min mile pace and 100 calories per mile are burned for a 130 pound person at the same jogging pace.

Running calories burned vs walking calories burned
There is a common misconception that you burn as many calories walking as running.
Given a particular distance this is broadly accurate although due to the difference in movement, with running involving more up and down effort running has a slightly higher calorie burn rate.
The key principal to keep in mind though is, this is per equal distance and as we all live such busy lives most people will have a limited amount of time they can spend exercising.
30 minutes running burns vastly more calories than 30 minutes of walking.
Even if you are not at the stage where you could run for 30 minutes solid, doing a combination of run / walk will burn many more calories than simply walking.
