    About 5k races

    A 5k is the shortest of the common running event distances researched on Runnerclick, consisting of 3.1 miles (5 kilometers). These events can either be competitive or social, depending on the particular one you are looking into. They are the most popular of road running events because of their relatively short distance which allows not only the seasoned runners to run, but novice runners, joggers, and new-comers as well.
