How far is 10k?

Anyone can do a 10k

10K Race for Life

If you have taken part in a 5k Race for Life before, maybe this year you want to try the 10k event? Or maybe 10k is a better distance for you?

10 kilometres is just over six miles - that might sound long, but most people can walk it in under two hours - just like a stroll in the countryside!

Join the Race for Life 10k

We have nearly 100 Race for Life 10k events taking place up and down the country in 2020. Now you know how far it is, why not take the first step and find an event to enter?
