Training plans to help you smash a PB at your next 5-mile race

They may have fallen out of fashion in recent years, but 5-mile races are a lovely distance to add to your calendar. A 5-miler is a nice step up for anyone working their way from 5K to their first 10K. And for those comfortable racing 10K, a 5-miler will pose a new challenge that will see you running at a faster pace for almost as far.

It’s a race distance that doesn’t shout about itself as much as it should. Five-milers tend to be organised by local running clubs and you may have to do a little searching to find one close to you. But they’re worth having a look around for as they make a great addition to your race schedule, giving your training some structure and focus between other events.

About Women’s Running

In the May issue of Women’s Running, we are fast and FIERCE. We uncover 15 ways that running can make you more powerful, physically and mentally, and we’ve put them to the test. We also investigate the controversial topic of disordered eating and running: what are the warning signs to look out for in ourselves and others, and how we can support people who show symptoms of this harrowing and broad reaching mental illness that is unhappily prevalent in our community. We speak to journalist and author Bella Mackie on how she used running to manage the symptoms of her anxiety - so well, in fact, that she wrote a book about it. And we review tons of kit, including trail backpacks for days off the beaten track, some stunning neutral shoes, and fab all-weather jackets. Plus, we’ve got a training guide for a five-mile race, the ultimate marathon nutrition guide, and a lustworthy compo from Ultra - win three pairs of shoes worth £360!
