5 Reasons Why 5Ks are Awesome!

Family Friendly 

Thanks to the shorter length, a lot of 5Ks are okay with strollers, children, and even your beloved fur babies. These differ depending on the race and city, so make sure you read the rules before signing up.

Shorter Training Time

Marathons, ultras, and triathlons all take months of planning and training. For a 5K, most people can be race ready within 4-8 weeks.

A Lot of Options 

5Ks are EVERYWHERE! They are very attractive to race directors because they can draw both seasoned and novice runners. They are also a popular way to fundraise money for different causes.  

Get In Shape

Not a runner? Or you’re coming off of an injury or break? A 5K is the perfect distance to get you back into running.

Do it for the Cause

A lot of 5Ks benefit local and global causes. Find one that is helping a charity near and dear to your heart and sign up!
