On a normal run with Fleetmates: ~15 minutes.

On an elite run with random players: ~1 hour.

On an elite run with Fleetmates: ~45 minutes.

For elite, the bulk of the time spent in the run is waiting for the respawn timer to run and the slug fest involved with the +2 and+4 enemies.
1/3 of the run is just fighting off the Tactical cubes on the spawn. 1/2 is dealing with the Unimatrix guards and their regeneration probes. The Octahedron's Aceton Assimilator shockwave usually one-hits escorts WITH full shields. That and its shields take a really long time to bring down if less than three teammates have any shield debuffs or drains.
