a 5k race is acually a 3.1 mile run. Yes, it includes the extra 10th of a mile.
About 7.9 minutes per mile.
I think if you are a fast runner I think you should sprint half and jog half your last mile.
I'm not sure what the fastest 3.5 mile run ever is, but i do know the fastest 5k ever is a 12.37.35 by Kenenisa Bekele (Ethiopia) on May 31, 2004. www.chacha.com/question/what-is-the-world's-fastest-5k-running -time
A 5k run is 3.1 miles
A 5K run is a distance of 3.11 miles.
I don't know but I'm a ten year old girl and can run a 6 minute 36 mile and a 5k in 26 minutes.
well the men's world record for the 5k (about 3 + 1/8 mile) is 12:37.35 womens is 14:11.15
I think what you mean is 5k 5000 meters = 3.1 miles The 5000m record is 12:37.35.
Practice practice practice. The more and longer you run, the better your 5k time will be.
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.
A 5k is about 3.5 or so miles, so if you've ever been to kindergarten you can figure it out pretty easy.
