To sign up for the 5K or 10K?…That is the question

If you possess a good level of fitness (because of participation in other sports or fitness programs) you probably could run 6 miles on minimal training. The same is true if you have run a 5K or 8K race in the past. You might be sore the week after a 10K race, but you still could finish.

Sample training program for a novice 5K and 10K runner:

Novice 5K


Novice 10K

** The following programs were adopted from Hal Hogdon’s 5K/10K training
