Full Answer

If a 150-pound person completed a 3k run, that person would burn 211 calories. The number of calories burned varies slightly depending on the weight of the runner. Runner's World recommends focusing on the length of time a person runs rather than the distance. This is because the health benefits of running come from keeping the heart rate elevated for a certain period of time rather than covering a certain distance.
