Runways generally range from 7000 to 12000 feet. So, roughly one and a half to two and a half miles, I would say.

I would say the average is 2 miles for the major airports and 1.5 for regionals.

If you're averaging only airports with commercial traffic, then the above posts are probably fairly accurate. However, if you are wondering what the true average is, it is much less. At a wild guess, I would say most runways are between 1 and 4 thousand feet long, which is less than a mile.  Big thumbs up
