5K equals how many miles ....

Posted by Dave K.

For those of you thinking about doing a 5K, but not sure what it entails, I recommend you give it a shot. A 5K is a running race of about 3 miles. It's a pretty good distance to get you started on running, and signing up for a specific 5K run can be a great way to keep yourself motivated. Once you've done a few of those, you can consider signing up for a 10K, which is about 6 miles.
