Is it too soon to try a 5K fun run?

My daughter and I have completed up to Week 5 R2 (R3 tomorrow - gulp). We live in France where there seem to be very few short 5K runs. But on 5th September there is a Run and Dye in Chantilly near us. is it too soon to try that. Mind you I guess the answer will come tomorrow when we try the 20 minute straight run... Nervous about getting that one done...Would appreciate any advice

No, not at all. The emphasis on these types of event is the fun. There will be people there that walk the whole thing.

Go for it.

Have a ball

Walk as & when you need to.

Good luck, looking forward to your run report ☺

Sign up!!! You can always run-walk the event, there are no rules saying you have to run the whole time.
