About 10k events in the UK

10k (6.2 miles) events are hugely popular with runners of all levels, either as a challenging starter event for beginners or as practice for longer distances. Event organisers will often give you a choice between 5k and 10k routes, so when you're ready to take that step up, you can. Much like for 5k events, some large 'running festivals' such as the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and Bournemouth Marathon Festival also host 10k races, with big crowds to cheer you on to the finish line.

What are the best 10k events?

If it's a big city race with thousands of participants and closed roads, then look no further than the Great Manchester Run, which is Europe's largest 10k. Swiftly following Manchester you can look to the Leeds 10k and the Vitality London 10,000 which are hugely popular. Many of these events will sell out or have ballot entry, so we'd recommend a fastest-finger-first approach when the tickets come out. If it's a smaller, more low key event you're looking for, check out our list of upcoming 10k runs near you.

How long will it take to run 10k?

If you've never run before, or are currently running 5k or less per week check out our 10k training plan. It's worth noting that some 10k events have a cut off time of around the 3 hour mark, as with the Cancer Research Winter Run.

The men's and women's world records for 10k road racing stand at 26m44s and 29m43s respectively, held by Leonard Patrick Komon and Joyciline Jepkosgei (who also holds the record for the women's half marathon). The average runner, who runs 5-10k a week, could expect to finish in around 1 hour. If you're new to running, don't sweat it, everyone starts somewhere. At these bigger events, everyone starts in waves depending on their estimated finishing time. This means that you won't come last, or be overtaken by the world and his wife.

How do you train for a 10k race?

Training for a 10k will differ depending on your current fitness levels, running experience and what goals you set yourself. If you're already doing exercise during the week, you can prepare for race day by checking out our 6 weeks to 10k training plan. Even if you're regularly crunching those miles, make sure to follow a training plan in the build up to the race. This will help to minimise the risk of injury, while giving you the best chance to smash your PB.

Fancy something more challenging? Check out our half marathon and marathon event calendars to find something near you.
