    Anyone here run the 5k? I would be interested to see what kind of times people run. I ran a charity 5k last weekend and it got me motivated to improve my time a bit. This was the first time I had tun more than a mile since last Summer and I wasn't too pleased with my performance. Maybe some responses from the Nike Ipod challenge crew?

    used to run that for XC in high school but i guess the times don't really apply to a flat ground/track 5k race

    I ran 19:10 back in early November... the last half of the race was all uphill though.

    Back in 1998-1999 (high school), my worst time was 17:58 or so. My PR was 16:12 on a mostly downhill race... 16:40ish on a regular course.
