    About 5k races

    A 5K is the shortest of the common running event distances, consisting of 3.1 miles (5 kilometers).  These events can either be competitive or social, depending on the particular event you are looking into running.  5Ks 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 newcomers as well.  5Ks are also something fun for families to do together.

    How did we choose the best 5K events in Wisconsin?

    We checked what events runners looked for the most and we compared statistics on how many runners held interest in any given event.  Feedback left by runners who participated in the course was also considered.  Other factors included how long the course has been around, the race swag and medals, what runners thought of them and how scenic the course is.  There are currently 972 5K races in the state of Wisconsin.  Most of these 5K races are held in May through October, with over 100 5K race events held in each month.

    What are the best 5K races in Milwaukee?

    There are many 5K races to choose from in Milwaukee.  As the largest city in the state of Wisconsin, it is a popular location for a 5K event.  Some of these are charity events for fundraising, some are fun runs for families and others are racing events, but it all comes down to the runners.  Some of the notable 5K running events in Milwaukee include the Milwaukee St. Paddy's 5K and the Shakespeare 5K.

    What are the best 5K races in Madison?

    Madison is the capital of Wisconsin and the second largest city in the state of Wisconsin, which makes it a popular location for a 5K event.  Some of these are charity events for fundraising, some are fun runs for families and others are racing events, but it all comes down to the runners.  Some of the notable 5K running events in Madison include the Movin' Shoes Frosty 5K Run and the Valentine's 5K.  The Movin' Shoes Frosty 5K Run takes place during Madison's Annual Winter Festival.

    About 10k races

    A 10K is one of the most common running event distances, consisting of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers). These events can either be competitive or more for fun, depending on the particular one you are looking into. They are twice the distance of the 5K and still  relatively short in distance. Less runners tend to participate than the 5K, but these events still get a lot of not only seasoned runners, but novice runners and joggers in attendance.

    How did we choose the best 10K events in Wisconsin? 

    We checked what events runners looked for the most and we compared statistics on how many runners held interest in any given event.  Feedback left by runners who participated in the course was also considered. Other factors included how long the course has been around, the bling and medals, what runners thought of them and how scenic the course is.  According to Running in the USA, there are 193 10K races in Wisconsin.  Most of these races take place in June and September.  There are at least 3 10K races held each month throughout the year.  January, February and December are the least popular months for 10K races in Wisconsin with 7, 4 and 3 race events held.

    There are many 10K races to choose from in the state of Wisconsin.  Some of these are charity events for fundraising, some are fun runs and others are racing events, but it all comes down to the runners.  Some of the most notable 10K running events in Wisconsin include the Brewers 10K in Milwaukee, the Spooner Stampede 10K in Spooner and the Houdini 10K in Appleton.  The Brewers 10K and Houdini 10K include a Finisher's Medal.
