Prepare to finish one of the most popular running distances in the United States with a 5K training plan. Take a look at the local events calendar in your area and you’re sure to find at least one, if not more, 5K running races happening this month.
The attraction of the 5K is that it is a great race for all types of runners. For many individuals, five kilometers (3.1 miles), is the first race distance they will try to complete. It’s their first race medal and race t-shirt, or a good challenge on their way to a healthier lifestyle. Even for more experienced runners, the 5K is a fun and fast challenge.
