Automatticians already hit the trail at our company meetup last week. It was early — the sun was barely peeking behind the mountains in Park City, Utah — but the air was crisp and the morning was perfect for running a 5k. (Staying fit is an important part of our company culture.)
Now it’s your turn! The Worldwide WordPress 5k will take place next week from Monday, October 26th to Sunday, November 1st.
Lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world! Read on to find out how to participate.
What is a 5k?
A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. You can run, walk, or skip; it’s totally up to you. There’s no time limit and there’s just one requirement: that you participate! You can do it at a gym or outdoors, on a treadmill or on a track, or even swim or bike instead of running/walking — just get moving!
A 5k (or 3.1 miles) is roughly equal to:
- Twelve laps around a track.
- Approximately 6000-7500 steps.
- Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.
When can I run?
We’re all busy, but we want you to participate, so we’re giving you lots of flexibility. You can complete the WWWP5k any time between Monday, October 26 and Sunday, November 1st.
Anyone who’s ever used or loved WordPress (and your families and friends, too). Heck, the entire Internet is invited!
How do I participate?
Post about it on your site and tag the post “wwwp5k” so that other runners around the world can find you and read about your experience. If you’re not on WordPress.com, link back to this announcement post so
