What you need to know about 5k Running

A 5k run is the perfect distance for a beginner, it’s 3.1 miles and is the shortest and most popular road running distance. It’s a great goal to include in your fitness regime because there’s no pressure, people walk, jog or sprint so it’s totally up to you.

Find local 5k running races

There are loads of great 5k events, they tend to attract a great crowd and are very family orientated. From runs around the London Parks, to night runs and family events, you won’t be short of 5ks to choose from. Most marathon events such as London or Berlin have a 10k and a 5k race as well so it’s worth checking the larger events.

5km, 10.5km or 21km trail running through the forests of Hurt in the Surrey Hills.

The Route Director was born in the Forests of the Hurtwood and has been running through them ever since he could stand. He knows them thar hills and he knows which will hurt and which will not. In 2018 the routes will be tweaked and some of those hills will be added. As all the distances will be extended, for some it will be a case of we meet again. For others it will be glad to meet you. Ive heard so much about you.

When you enter, assume distances are approximate. ie approximately 5k, approximately 10k and approximately 21k. They will be a couple of kms more than stated. Fear not, this will continue to be trail running at its best!

Fast, flat, fantastic! Choice of half marathon, 10k, 5k. Set in the beautiful Cherwell Valley countryside, the three routes all utilise the Heyford Park Airbase's Runway, RAF Taxiway & NATO Taxiway and are therefore pancake flat, traffic-free and pretty much PB guaranteed! These races are timed perfectly if you are planning to run a Spring marathon, but equally good for those venturing into racing, moving up a distance or just trying to improve times.
