Not surprisingly, our 5K list spans the country from races that sport some awesome seasonal inspiration (pumpkins, anyone?) to races that celebrate the power and strength of women’s running! Top race choices included perks like chocolate, a craft beer festival, sunrise yoga, and cash prize costume contests! A great distance for every type of runner or walker, the 5K race comes with a fun-natured air that frequently welcomes the full-on family experience that’s developed into way more than just the “couch to 5K” cliché!

Below is a list of the Top 3 5Ks ranked in order, and the remainder of the Top 15 list in alphabetical order.
