How far is 10k?

Anyone can do a 10k with a bit of training

Women at Race for Life

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

10 kilometres is just over six miles, which may sound a little daunting, but is an achievable challenge for anyone with a bit of training.

Take on a Race for Life 10k

We have nearly 100 Race for Life 10k events taking place up and down the country this year. Now you know how far it is, why not take the first step and find an event and enter - this is beating cancer.


Or up the challenge

Half marathon events
