10k Runs

10k (or 6.2 miles) is a great distance for running, and these events are some of the most popular in the UK. If you're a beginner, then the 10k distance provides a healthy challenge. Set yourself the challenge of running an event in under an hour for a decent time and a good workout. Running 10km in 60 minutes would burn about 600 calories. For seasoned athletes, the 10k is a perfect distance to keep fit and boost your pace, without completely exhausting yourself. If you're training towards a fast half-marathon or marathon event, you might set yourself the challenge of running 10k in under 40 minutes. There are hundreds of 10k events in the running calendar, and they are often part of big city running festivals, so there is bound to be a great atmosphere cheering you on to a new PB. The Great Manchester Run is the largest 10k run in Europe, with over 40,000 taking part on the day.

About 10k events in the UK

10km (or 6.2 miles) is a hugely popular distance with runners of all levels. 10k races are perfect 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.

Frequently asked questions

What are the best 10k events in the UK?
The best 10k events in the UK are the Great Manchester Run, which is Europe’s largest 10k, the Leeds 10k, and the capital’s Vitality London 10000. There are also hundreds of smaller, local 10ks around the UK.
How long does it take to run 10k?
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.
The average runner, who runs 5-10k a week, could expect to finish in around 1 hour.
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 following a 6-week training plan.
