Personally, anything 1 1/2 hrs plus is deemed a long run.:)
I do tend to consider my long runs in terms of miles though.

At the moment 1 1/2 hours is a long run for me.

I am hoping to up it during the winter so that I can consider entering my first 1/2 marathon next year.

A hilly (700ft ascent) 5 miler is my long run at the moment. Takes about 50 mins. Just like Dave I'm looking to up it over winter to get ready for a half.

I only started running seriously in Feb/Mar this year and didn't join a club until May, so a 1.5hr run is still long for me.

I go out for a long run on Sunday, normally with my club. Usually, it's the good runners in my club (sub-3hr marathon in some cases) on the Sunday run. Their slow pace is close to my running pace. Recently, I did a 10-miler (completed it in 1hr 23mins), and its the longest distance I've ever run.

I try to do two longer runs a week.
1.5 hrs sometime in the week then 2hrs plus on a Sunday. Up to 3hrs plus if training for a marathon. 2hrs slow for me is only 16 miles.
