5k Runs 2023 - 2024

The findarace.com calendar lists hundreds of 5k races across the US every year - there's almost one for every day of the year. 5 km is one of the most popular race distances, and with a bit of training it's relatively achievable for most ages, shapes, and sizes - as a result, they make perfect family fun runs that multiple generations can take part in and enjoy.

A 5k race is also a perfect goal for a beginner or new runner who hasn't taken part in an organized race before - it's a great, fun introduction to the race day experience that’s a little easier than a 10k race. 5k races are also popular with more seasoned runners looking to keep their running short, sharp, and fast - we list the fastest and flattest 5km races across America (as well as the craziest and hardest).
