If you walk at 4 mph, it will take you 90 minutes to cover six miles. You burn 510 calories if you weigh 150 pounds, 680 calories at 200 pounds and 850 calories at 250 pounds, according to A Calorie Calculator.


Cover those six miles at a more brisk pace of 5 mph and it will take you 72 minutes. At 150 pounds, you burn 653 calories. You burn 871 calories if you weigh 200 pounds and 1,089 calories if you weigh 250.
