Number of miles in a 5K

Posted by Abby W.

I ran a 5k recently and was surprised to learn how many of my friends didn't know how long that was. The answer is 3.1 miles. A Kilometer is about .6 miles, so for a 5K just mutliply 5 km by .6 to get 3 miles.

so that would make a 10k about 6 miles? (I'm quick like that!)
awesome , i want to do a 5 k also
Right, Dave, 6.2 miles for a 10K. A half marathon is 13.1 miles and a full marathon is 26.2 miles, or 26 miles 385 yards to be more precise.
