Here is an idea on how long it would take to get this achievement:

3.5 hours of continuous walking or summed up time walking.

Here is the main reasons for choosing 'Super Mudball' with the parameters of a four (4) human player or four (4) active controllers VS match.
1) The achievements listed later in the post can be all had from this one (1) board.
2) No time limit.
3) The math below is based on this game board.

First, select party games and do verses or verses with quiz. Then select 'Super Mudball' game. Using the 50m samba zombie achievement as a basis for estimate, here is the approximate time in revolutions around the game board border to get this achievement. An actual mile is 1609.344 meters. If we assume that an actual mile is scaled properly in the game, one and a half (1.5) revolutions around the board is 50 meters worth, based on the samba achievement. Multiply the 50 meters by 2 to even out 100 meters per 3 revelutions. Now, by dividing the 1609.344 (meters) by 100 (meters) we get 16.1 (approx.) and then multiply by the 3 revolutions to get 48.3 times around the border to get one (1) mile worth of walking. Finally, multiply by 26 (miles) to get the final number of 1256 revolutions around the border of the game board with about 10 secs (approx.) per a revolution running you a grand total of 3.5 hours of constant circling or running in a corner.

1.5 revolutions = 50 meters
x 2 on both sides
3 revolutions = 100 meters

1609.344 meters = 1 mile
1609.344 / 100 = 16.1
16.1 * 3 = 48.3 revolutions = 1 mile

26 miles * 48.3 revolutions = 1256 revolutions

1256 * 10 sec per revolution = 12560 secs

12560 / 60 secs / 60 minutes = 3.5 hours of continuous walking

Now I know that is a lot of work to receive a number of times to walk your bird around the board and for how long. Here is the reasons I did it.

1) This gives a basic idea of how long it will take to get this achievement.
2) I wanted to show where I came up with the total time of investment into this achievement - straight and continuous walking.
3) I love numbers and I am a straight number geek.

Here is a list of other achievements that can be had from this board alone:

RioBullyguardThe Bullyguard achievement in Rio worth 81 pointsStun 50 players with the bodyguard power-up.

RioSuper ShockerThe Super Shocker achievement in Rio worth 24 pointsHit 100 players with shock and awe.

RioLost In The RhythmThe Lost In The Rhythm achievement in Rio worth 20 pointsRun 50m whilst in a latin trance.

RioChilli CrasherThe Chilli Crasher achievement in Rio worth 15 pointsStun 100 players whilst under the effect of chilli.

RioMultiplayer MasterThe Multiplayer Master achievement in Rio worth 7 pointsWin a game in any mode against 3 human players.

RioCollectathonThe Collectathon achievement in Rio worth 17 pointsCollect 1000 items.

I enjoy every once in a while breaking away from the grind of achievement hunting and do some fun number stuff.

Hope you enjoyed reading and good luck!
