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.

Remco V Run your first 10k Challenge

Remco V Last sunday it was race time, the weather was perfect a bit chill in the beginning but after the first KM it was fine. Though being it an official measured and timed race it was not about true speed, Really!! With 50% of the track consisting of 400 year old cobblestones I prefered to save my knees and ankles and managed to race in 47:50. Next up is 10 English Miles in Amsterdam. (but first a few mountain bike races)

Denise S Run your first 10k Challenge

Contributorgold Denise S Did my first 10k yesterday in 1:39:51. It was a training run with periods of walking. More running than walking which is a huge step forward for me. Planning on completing a half marathon in October and I'm entered in several 5k's both live timed events and virtual races.

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.
