Anyone want to challenge this time at next Saturday's Parkrun. Just watched the European 5000 metres (5K) men's race from Berlin on TV, the winning time was by Norwegen 17-year-old Jakob Ingebritsen in 13 minutes 17.06 seconds. If anyone can beat that time next Saturday morning, well done, but I very much doubt it. He is the same and youngest person who ran a sub-4 minute mile in a time of 3.58.07 when he was 16 years of age, however, in that race in Eugene, Oregon, he only came 11th.
5K in 13m 17secs: Anyone want to challenge this... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Crikey and I thought winning time on our local parkrun today was fast at just over 17 mins - and she was motoring 😁
Tracks help you go fast... the 5000m record is less than the 5k record, which is less than any trail record. Stretford parkrun does include a track section and the rest of it is very flat if anybody fancies a crack though 😂
Edit: I looked it up, an Olympic finalist did a parkrun in 13:48... 5k is 12:59.5, 5000m is 12:37.35
That'll drop the Age Weighted numbers for the 15-20 age group!
Ha ha! I watched that too. With his brother second. Reminded me of the brownlee brothers 💪🏽
Haha! That's just over how long it's taking me to do a mile!!! There's definitely no chance of me getting anywhere close to that!
No... no challenges for me...I did my speed running when I was 18 Fastest 880 yds...running for my county, Staffordshire... ! Yep.. that old.. yards
Built for distance now...not speed
Yes indeed Floss, I ran very fast "100-yard dashes" and won them when I was at Primary School way back in the 1950's. After I left Primary School I took up cycling, gave up running until quite recently to do C25K, I hope you have recovered from your recent injuries on the IC.
How can they run so fast.........?🤪🤪
Never had a beer in their lives... gotta feel sorry for them really 😂
As I said somewhere else on this form, the winning time for men in the 5000 metres (5K) on Saturday evening was 13m 17.6secs, just watched the womens 5000 metres race in Berlin on Sunday evening, the winning time was 14m46.12 seconds, if any of the ladies on this form can beat that at this Saturday morning's park-run, wow.
PS, some of the runners who can run a sub 15 minute 5k might have a little beer to celebrate, I don't think they are all teetotal.
Hehe... I was thinking about when I say to the Mrs “I’m popping for a beer on the way home” more than the singular... can’t remember doing the singular ever lol
Those are some fast times. Not seen any of the championships and now the football has started and I have to fein interest in that for a few weeks.
Not too many times that elite athletes do 5k road races, I think I’m right in recalling that almost all of the top times are from one event.
Mo did 15:06 (I think) in his only official parkrun and then 23 something on his second where he didn’t cross the line (he was running with his wife in her first ever 5k)
Summink about great lung and heart capacity, lower gravity and fast leg movement. Oh, and next to zero body fat. Today l managed to run 10k in (for me) crazy 57 minutes whereas those guys bash it out in less than 27, haha. Oh dear....
I watched him race too - I’ve been paying so much more attention to running style etc since starting the programme! And yes, he was seriously impressive! He’d lap me more times than I’d be able to count! 😅😅😅
It’s been a great championship - a brilliant idea to do it all at the same time. 👏
Not what you're looking for?
