Long runtimes may cause you to lose marks for style/maintainability, because it indicates that you have inefficiencies in your code (such as many nested loops). Bash isn't super efficient anyway, so if it takes a few seconds to execute (especially on large files), that's fine. Once you get above 10 seconds I'd probably be concerned, unless the input file is truly colossal. If your script takes over a minute then that's a real problem.
