It depends on how long you take to move! A 5K is 3.1 miles. If you walk it briskly, you can do it in 50-60 minutes. If you run/jog it, it could take you as little as 35 minutes.


I've done a 5k before, a 5k is 3.1 miles. I've only done it once and it took me 28 minutes and 45 seconds. I'm gonna do another 5k this Saturday (April 13th 2013) and I will see how long it takes me.

By the way, I am 13 years old and I have done cross-country for two years In September 2013 I will be team captain, my point is I am in shape. Your time in cross-country races like 5k's all depend how in shape you are.
