    I love 10k races even without much training you can partake. However with a little bit of training you can really enjoy. Here in Bristol I love the Frenchay 10 in April and also my own local Bristol 10k in May

    Me too! Arley Hall 10km is a lovely race up this way (North West)

    I like them too. They're brutal but the suffering is not as long as for a half. I'd like to do some 10ks on my way to my half-marathon PR (eek) next year!

    For me it’s the 5k park run, though that follows an 8k ‘warmup ‘ run to it and an 8k run home after :laugh:

    I have a trail 10k next Saturday (trail running is the new goddess of running...or so we are led to believe!) which is a great winter mud fest....There is a prize in all categories and as I am the only over 60 in the race I should pick up a little trophy as long as I turn up :smile:

    10k is a good distance, preferably if it's preceded by a swim and bike :smile:
