As race distances go, the 10K (or 6.2 mile) race is that awkward teenager who doesn’t quite fit in — not geeky enough for the nerds, not cool enough for the jocks. Often overlooked and underappreciated, the 10K is a “tweener” distance — too far for beginners but too short for seasoned runners, more intimidating than a 5K but without the post-race euphoria that comes with longer distances.
Tackling a 10K typically is not a spur-of-the-moment decision, as the distance requires some training to finish comfortably. It’s a race distance that enables sporadic runners to step outside their comfort zone, without the anxiety and demands of longer distances.
