HESPERIA:(VVNG.com)- The 5K run is a long-distance road running competition over a distance of five Kilometers (3.1 miles). Also referred to as the 5K road race, 5 km, or simply 5K, it is the shortest of the most common road running distances. It is usually distinguished from the 5000 metres track running event by stating the distance in kilometres, rather than metres.
Among road running events, the 5K distance is mostly popular with novice or infrequent runners or joggers, as it is comparatively easier to complete the distance without endurance training. This also makes the distance suitable for people looking to improve or maintain their general physical fitness, rather than develop long-distance running abilities. The brevity of the distance means that less time is required to take part in the activity and that people from a wide range of ages and abilities may participate.
You’ll get lots of motivation, as well as enjoyment, from participating in a race, and 5K is the perfect distance for first-timers. Doing a 5K run can add a new level of challenge and interest to your exercise program.
START/FINISH LOCATION: Percy Bakker Center, 9333 “E” Ave. The course is a flat, paved loop that takes place along Main Street.
RACE IS FREE! First 1,000 participants who register ONLINE by Friday, September 5, 2014 will receive a FREE 5K T-Shirt !
