That's a pretty big time range xD (i'm pretty unfit so i can run 5k in 34mins >.>. The lancaster park run) 15 mins is pretty amazing and 30 mins is a bit below average i'd say...
That's not bad at all. Keep going at it and I'm sure you'll be in the 20s
. I'm not too concerned about being average. I'm bigger than most. I expect to be slower. I just wouldn't want to be so bad I was last and a long distance behind everyone else.
Sorry. I just meant the shortest time I can possibly aspire to is probably 15 minutes.
tells you where park runs are all over the country and they're mostly 5k i don't know if that's what you're looking for though???
I do the Lancaster park run whenever I'm at school
They are all 5k I think

Sigh, the reason why you're not making the progress you should be making is because you don't put enough effort in. Running till your about to be sick means you're pushing youself.
I thought the user might not be literal.
As for lack of progress, there certainly is some.
Last year my calves burnt when I walked 3 miles in an hr. I started this year walking the 5 miles (4.7-5 depending on the map I use) in 1:30 which is a somewhat faster rate (3.13-3.33 mph). I now consistently do it around 1:15 (3.76-4 mph)
Yesterday I ran for half an hr on the treadmill and spent another 12 minutes walking on it. I also walked for 6 miles that day.

I'm pretty sure people go and walk the parkruns. They certainly don't expect everyone to be super athletic, I think you would be fine going to walk/run it - why not take a friend? It would mean you don't have to adapt to running outside as you'd already be doing it, and it is a different thing. I do think if you can run 5k on a treadmill you can probably make it round 5k outside although you'd be slower and it would be tough.
If that's the case, then perhaps I can do it. I'm hoping
can give me an idea of max time allowed. There's no number on the site. I suppose I could take a friend. I didn't think about that. Thanks
. Most of mine are lazy
but I think I can think of someone. Outside is definitely harder!
