What is a 5K/10K, you ask? It's a run or walk. If you chose 5 kilometers, that is about 3.1 miles. 10 kilometers is two laps on the course, or 6.2 miles. Whether you join us in-person or walk or run on your own, this is a fun run, self-timed. You can do on your own time at your own pace in your own place. You can time yourself using an app like Strava, MapMyRun or MapMyWalk, Runkeeper or any other app. Or you can use a smart watch or a stopwatch. After you complete your run or walk, return to the website to record your time.
