We are playing Curse of the Crimson Throne, we are approximately halfway through book 4; we have played 34 sessions at an average of 4 – 5 hours per session. Say 4.5 hours each, that makes it 153 hours. Assuming it takes the same amount of time on average to play through the remaining two and a half books, 262 hours.
My Monday group is getting ready to finish Legacy of Fire, with an approximate total of 128 hours (32 x 4hour sessions).
That said, most of it has been only two players, knuckling down. Started with four players and things went much slower then. Also, I think LoF is one of the shorter APs. We went through Chapter 3 in under 8 hours alone.
EDIT: My Tuesday group has put in at least 300 hours table-time on Rise of the Runelords, and I believe we're just starting Chapter 6. The DM is more experienced, there's more players (5-7), and the players are more concerned with role-playing whereas my Monday players prefer combat.

Assuming 4-5 hours per session, it looks like our group will take longer than most (but not as long as Austin Morgan's group) to finish Runelords; we've had 29 sessions and have just started Book 4. At that rate we'll have put in 250 hours by the time we're done -- and we even skipped one-fifth of Book 3, as well as a short encounter or two from Book 1.
Were in Book 6 of Rise of the Runelords, and were looking at session 32 at an average of 4-6 hours/session. To be fair we goof off as much as play, maybe more so a fair estimation is 3-4 hours/session. So it looks like somewhere between 96 to 192 hours so far with about another 9 to 18 hours left. That puts us at around 200-210 hours realistically.
I have just started running the Carrion Crown AP and I am curious to know how long it will take to play all the way to the end. How long roughly in hours has it taken over groups to finish a whole adventure path?
We normally game for 6 to 8 hours. We normally get one level per session. So if an AP runs to about level 15-17 then 90 to 136 hours. I really doubt that 90 is it, and neither is 136. I would guess that it is around 110 to 115.
