On the subject of entry fees - I've just seen the Oxford Fun Run which is 5K round University parks and they're asking £25 .  A fiver per Kilometre!

Spongecake -  I think losing your mono sounds just as good as losing your mojo.  I certainly haven't been out for a single run in months    (can someone tell RW that Christmas is over!)

As Vixx says - the demand is there, and they play on that.   Mind you, the demand is also there for VLM and that is so much less.

Races for kids?

Didn't know about the 2K events.  Great idea though. 5K is quite a commitment for some of the tiddlers & beginners.  Nice stepping stone.

Races for kids?

Yes, parkrun.  There are loads around the country.   They all start at 9am on a Saturday (apart from Scotland who I think start a little later).  They are all 5K.  All ages and abilities are welcome.  It challenges the individual to and they can watch their progress on an on-line log of their runs.    Have a look at   to find your nearest one.

For a girl you could also consider the race for life 5k series through cancer research UK.  There may be one or 2 near you. 

Other 10k races often have shorter races attached.  What part of the country are you in?   We are a bit short of 5Ks in the Thames Valley area but other areas have plenty.

Am assuming you may have already taken a look on the events search here on RW?
