5 Minute 1 Mile Run Challenge

Perform a 5 minute 1 mile run. Does not matter if you take breaks, but it has to be done in under 5 minutes and a full mile. 

Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.


5 Minute 1 Mile Run Challenge Additional Information

The 5 Minute 1 Mile Challenge is one of the most difficult running goals to achieve. It requires peak performance. In order to successfully complete this challenge, keep your eyes on the end and finish strong.

Keep Your Eyes on the End

Running the 5 Minute 1 Mile Challenge is exciting. At the beginning you will have adrenaline running though your body and be energized with anticipation. These factors, combined with the fast pace required to complete this goal, can be disastrous to completing the challenge. 

The tendency at the start of a 5 minute mile is to begin to fast. Yes, the pace must be quick. But, you must be able to keep that pace up for a full mile.

In order to maintain a healthy pace throughout the full mile, keep your eyes on the end. If you are running around a track, count the number of laps required. If running a different course, know the route. Know where the finish is.

By being familiar with the route you are running, you will be able to gauge how much distance is left. Use this knowledge to pace yourself so you can finish the run.

Finish Strong

Of course you will begin the 5 Minute 1 Mile Challenge at a quick pace. Yet, the successful runners will also finish it strong. 

At the end of the run, every second matters. Many runners will finish between 4 min. 50 sec. and 5 min. Those 10 last seconds are a precious, narrow window of time.
