RE: Swimming to Running, what is equivalent??
In terms of calories burned I think about 1 mile freestyle = 3 or 4 miles running, but it obviously depends how efficient you are at swimming.

I am not a particularly efficient swimmer and I run 80-100 miles per week when training for something. For me I would say that swimming a 'fast' mile feels about how I would feel after running ten miles at a decent effort.
