If you're talking about the actual time it takes to physically run a 5k (and not how long it would take to train for one), it's about 30 minutes. 5k is around 3.1 miles, so if you average 10 minutes per mile, it's 30 minutes total.

17 Miles for two miles if the speed is consistent. If you are alluding to a real life situation though, it should be closer to 16, as there isn't another mile to run, and a typical pace would be faster for a 2-miler than a 5k.
