Running a 10k is an excellent distance goal for new and intermediate runners. The 10k (6.2 miles) is a great milestone for any runner to have achieved. Hitting it will allow you to feel confident enough to participate to run 5k and 10k races to improve your running form. Start increasing the amount of time you're running for, to improve your running endurance, building up to the full 10k distance.

Ryon F Run your first 10k Challenge

Contributorbronze Ryon F I've never run an official 10k before, though I have run that far in one stretch before, only once that I remember, and it was a couple of years ago. I am signing up for one in October. Aiming for a lofty sub 50:00.

Kevin G and Alan S encouraged this.


Nice one Ryon, enjoy your first 10k and hopefully you'll get under your 50:00 target.
