Losing 100 lbs in two months is not advised by most doctors, it is also usually a quick fix and not a way to create a sustainable lifestyle change.
However the math on this would be as follows:
3500 calories = 1 lb
Avg burn per mile 90-100 calories
To lose 100 lbs you would need to create a 350,000 calorie deficit. If your runs account for calories to create this deficit you would need to run 3888 to 3500 miles depending on size, speed, etc.
