10k Runs 2023 - 2024

10k runs are perhaps the most popular running events in the UK. A 10k race (about 6.2 miles) is an achievable but challenging distance for a beginner looking to move up from 5k races and Parkruns. However, a 10k is also an excellent distance for more experienced runners and is often used to increase endurance for longer distances.

Because 10k races are so popular, there are lots of them - findarace lists over 400 10k runs every year all over the UK and beyond. So whether you’re a Parkrunnner looking to step up to your first 10k or an experienced racer looking for a 10k PB, check out our comprehensive 2022 - 2023 10k race calendar below. Filter by date, location or race type, and you’ll find a perfect race for you.

If you're looking for an online challenge that you can participate in anywhere (including indoors), check out our 10k virtual runs. What about a bigger challenge? The next step up is the Half Marathon, or why not set yourself a huge goal to smash by signing up for your first marathon?
