The 5K offers an array of challenges to all levels of runners. Experienced runners may wish to improve their time from a previous race, whereas beginning runners might simply hope to finish the event. Regardless of your motivation, running the 5K is a goal that you can accomplish after just a few short weeks of training. By the time you complete the first training schedule, you'll be able at least to finish a 5K without months of intense preparation, even if you have to walk for part or all of it.
