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.

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.
