Running a 10k is an excellent distance goal for new and intermediate runners. The 10k (6.2 miles) is a great milestone for any runner to have achieved. Hitting it will allow you to feel confident enough to participate to run 5k and 10k races to improve your running form. Start increasing the amount of time you're running for, to improve your running endurance, building up to the full 10k distance.

Ronan P Run your first 10k Challenge

Ronan P I just started running in Feb, I've done a 4 mile and two 5k in the last 3 weeks. I'm hoping to do my first 10k in 6-8 weeks. It's going to take a lot of hard work but I'm really looking forward to it. I'm doing 4:49-4:59/km now so hope to keep that pace and just increase the distance.

Jane H Run your first 10k Challenge

Hi Jenn, try loosening the laces, could be that your feet swell during the run and your runners become too tight 

Davinia S Run your first 10k Challenge

Contributorsilver Davinia S Completed! 10k in 53.22. I was hoping I would do it in under an hour, but didn't think I'd be able to do it in under 55mins, so quite pleased! Although I started to get really tight lower calves after about 6k. Am hoping to make it a regular weekly run and then increase once I feel ready.

Keep going everyone, it's a great sense of achievement when you complete it!
