It depends on what speed you were travelling. At the speed of light it would naturally take 300 million years. However, since nothing with mass can travel at that speed, it would actually take a lot longer.

The fastest moving spacecraft ever launched by human kind travelled at 252,792 km/h (157,078 mph). At this speed it would take 1.3 trillion years to travel 300 million light years. That is about 95 times as long as the universe has existed.

Finally, most human space craft travel a lot slower than that, and speeds like that are currently unachievable for a craft moving away from the sun. Most spacecraft leaving the sun travel at about 60,000 km/h (38,000 mph). At that speed it would take 5.4 trillion years to travel 300 million light years. This is about 394 times longer than the universe has existed.
