Your question is difficult to answer. It depends on things like how long you've been running. On average, it takes me around 18-20 minutes to run 2.5k.
My 6 year old runs 2.5k in 18-19 minutes. 😖😂

Last time I ran timed 2.4km after sit ups, press ups etc properly timed was 09:27 as a mid - 30s female. Keen runner though.

A very similar distance was used to gauge fitness while I was in the Army(2.4km or 1.5 miles). The last one I attempted I got 8:15. I've since left though and so my time will no doubt have dipped a good bit.The fact that you're out running means that you're on the right path. I found fitness to just be one big grind - consistently chip away at it and push your self a little and you'll make headway gradually.

I'm a 15 yr old girl how fast ,on average, should I run 2.5km?? 😃😃
I run 2.5km every other morning for the last 2 weeks. I run it in around 10 and a half minutes (but it is mostly uphill). Hope this helps and good luck.

I’m a 15 year old lad, I’ve been running for a month or two now, I’m an amateur kickboxer on the side so I tend to do more skipping and stuff but I can do 2.4 k in 12:20.

Now ya see I’m an 11 year old boy / nearly 12 I’ve been running all my life and run for the county. For a 15 k it takes me 1 hr 2 minutes but for a 2.5 k it takes me 11 minutes and 13 seconds so if an 11 year old can do it then u can just keep pushing till u collapse and learn the hard way other wise you’ll never get to the standerds u want to get to wether it’s winning a gold medal or just general fitness hope this helped u guys!😰😰😰

I’m no expert but I’m 12 and I think I can probably run that in 8-10 minutes so with lots of practice and right weight you should probably run 2.5km I’m 5-8 minutes idk of this helped

Ah, so 2.4k is 1.5 miles! In that case in response to the original post, when I was 14, I ran 8:23 on a slippery 2.4k route.

I'm 14 and I just started running like yesterday and I ran 4 km in 30 minutes, I could've done more. So I guess I ran 2.5 km in approximately 18 minutes? I guess because I'm running less I'd be able to do it faster, so probably 14-15 minutes.

in this scenario we would have to assume that I can run 2.5k without needing an ambulance to take me from the 500m mark to the end --- so considering that assumption; 12 hours min.

believe me, you're doing better than at least one person already

Not sure about 2.5km but 2.4km from my time in the army, fastest I ever ran it was 7.55. Knew a guy part of the signals school in OCS run it in 6.44. Guy was a national standard triathlete. Was 67.8 kg at the time.

Now my 2.4 time is closer to 8.30 but I am 82 kg as I've packed on a lot more mass.

You can improve your 2.4 time really quickly. Just keep running that's all there is to it. Would have recruits start Basic doing it in 18/19 minutes and by the end of it after 12 weeks they'd be sub 9.45

I'm 17 training for that RAF. I have to do 2.4km in 1:11 and my PR is 9:30. My average is 10:30

I have it on the 15th April 2020 so I hopefully will pass. The hard part are the press ups straight after

For male, I'd say 13min is average for being fit and 15min for female but the RAF look for the people who go over and beyond
