Of course there are others, but this one is short and to the point.

Love it.  Of course as a distance runner I had a pretty good idea anyway, as I had so many distances memorized:

5 km = 3.1 mile
10 km = 6.2 mile
15 km = 9.3 miles
50 km (only ran two!) = 31 miles

...now I feel tired.

Let me be a little arrogant: 1 km ~ 0.6 miles which means that a given distance in kms multiplied with 0.6 gives appr. the same distance in miles.

1 mile ~ 1.6 km which means that a given distance in miles multiplied with 16 gives appr. the same distance in kms.

50 miles ~   80 km
60 miles ~ 100 km
100 miles ~ 160 km
anything above that pr hour takes a strong wind and a steep hill.

A quick mention of the rather excellent and totally free calculator/converter from Microsoft (yes - I'm surprised too...):
