Pacing in KM
To run 10km in 1:18:00 you will need to run at an average pace of 7:48 min/km which gives you the following splits..
Based on your 10km time of 1:18:00 we can use the equation T2 = T1 x (D2/D1)1.06 to predict your finish times for longer distances.
- 5km – 37:25
- 10km – 1:18:00
- Half Marathon – 2:52:06
- Marathon – 5:58:49
This prediction formula will be more accurate for distances close to 10km, so the 5km prediction time of 37:25 will be more attainable and relevant than a full marathon of 5:58:49.
