A 15-year-old could run a 5K race in 30 to 45 minutes and this would be a good time. Running more often will shorten the time. A good time to be running a 5K race for a 15-year-old could be between 30 and 40 minutes. You can lower the time by running often and practicing.
A 5k in 15:30 is very good. A runner with that time could be extremely competitive (most likely top 1-3) at most cross country meets and local 5k races.
averedge for girls is like 27min a good time would be from 23-25 for your age

Yes, running a 5K in 18 minutes is a great time for a 15 year old. Congrats.I believe a 15 year old running a 5K in 18 minutes is excellent; competing time for a 5K is 19-20 minutes.
I am in high school and i was number 15 on the team when i ran a 23:33 in a 5k race. A good time to run it for a physical fit person would probablly be around there but if you arent in shape or are hurt, then a 25 or 26 minute 5k would be acceptable as well
Some runners (like me) actually go jogging the day of or day after a 5k race. The Lactic acid stays in your legs for some time after a race, and running pushed blood through, breaking up the acid and helping your legs heal.

20 minutes is an average tome for a 5k race.
A 23min 5k would be an ideal time for a 14 year old girl who has been running for about 2 years. If you are a beginner, 27min is a good time to start on. !
I am organizing a 5K road race in Illinois. Costs about $2500 to get everything rolling for a first time race. Hope this helps.

A 5k race translates as 3.1 miles. This is the average race length for high school cross country runners. This is also the average race length for crew rowers in the springtime.
A good time for a 12 year old boy would be in the low 20s. Like, 20-22. But, I'm 13 and i ran my first 5k ever in 19:04.
