Five kilometers is equivalent to approximately 3.1 miles. An average time for an novice athlete to run a 5k would be thirty minutes (approximately ten minutes per mile).

If you want to be on a competing National level between 13-15 minutes.(male) If you are running just to run I would say that an impressive time would be 18-20 minutes. Under 30 minutes would be a good goal to start with.

3 Miles in 19.5 minutes (19 minutes 30 seconds) is 1 mile in 6.5 minutes (6 minutes 30 seconds). (19.5 ÷ 3 = 6.5)That is based on her average speed. It is safe to assume that she can run one mile or just even the first of 3 miles in less time, probably around 6 minutes. That is a good pace! A 5k (five kilometers) run is about 3.107 miles. A mile in 6.5 minutes is the same as 3.107 miles in 20 minutes 11.7 seconds (average speed of 9.23 MPH).The female record for a 5K is about 14 minutes 11 seconds. A very good time is still 17-20 minutes. A good beginners time is around 30 minutes.

1 5k each month for 6 months: 5 * 6 = 30 1 10k each month for 10 months: 10 * 6 = 60 So you're looking at 90k + training (which depends on your training methods)

5000/26 = 192.3 meters/minute = 3.205 meters/sec

I've been running 5k for around 6 eweks now (previously unable to run full 5k). I started out at 42 mins but now running 5k in 36.04. I'm still about 30 pounds over my desired weight so hope to improve further. Hope this helps.

When I ran my first 5k I took 45 minutes. I think around that time.

If you're talking about the actual time it takes to physically run a 5k (and not how long it would take to train for one), it's about 30 minutes. 5k is around 3.1 miles, so if you average 10 minutes per mile, it's 30 minutes total.

Practice practice practice. The more and longer you run, the better your 5k time will be.
