    Could you please explain for the uninitiated what a marathon is–how long a distance, any rules? Also, can you convert kilometers to miles –how far in miles is a 5K run?

  2. Rebecca Says:

    Hey Linda,

    Here are the most common distances for foot races:

    5K: 3.1 miles
    10K: 6.2 miles
    Half-Marathon: 13.1 miles (approx 21K)
    Marathon: 26 miles 385 yards (42.195K)
    Ultramarathon: Anything over marathon distance. The most common ultramarathons are 50 or 100 miles.

    Nick may have more to add, but these are the distances.

    Thanks, Becca!
    Very interesting stuff for us old fogies. I’m so glad Nick had a good experience in Austin. It was funny to read that the photog’s comment about how he only photographed RUNNERS made Nick charge ahead with running again! Ha! Mild-mannered Nick is a pretty competitive guy, and even a closet mysophobe, he writes. You guys are hysterical!
    Congratulations to Nick, and to you for supporting him!
    — See you soon, Linda
