Running a 5K is a first target for new runners. You'll get lots of motivation, as well as enjoyment, from participating in a race, and 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) is the perfect distance for first-timers.
You've already run at least one 5K road race, or you've been running for a little while and are ready to race a 5K. If the beginner runner 5K schedule doesn't seem like it's challenging enough for you, and the advanced 5K schedule seems a bit too tough, try this 8-week advanced beginner 5K schedule.
Improving your time! To achieve a Personal Best (PB) in the 5 Kilometer distance, you'll definitely need to add some efforts and speed training to your programme, if you haven't already. This is an eight-week training schedule to help you run your fastest 5K.
