What Races Can I Run?

The 5K Run 1 of 11

A 5K, which is equal to about 3.1 miles, is the shortest standard race length and is great if you're a beginner. Not only is this the most accessible race length for most people, but it is also the most popular. There are lots of 5ks throughout the year, some competitive, some not; and most work toward a goal, like supporting a charity or raising awareness for a cause.
