A kilometer is 0.62 miles, so 5 kilometers is equivalent to 3.1 miles. Dividing walked miles per hour by 3.1 and multiplying by 60 minutes gives the number of minutes it takes to complete a 5-kilometer distance.

In sports terminology, the 5-kilometer distance is referred to as a 5K. Walking 5 kilometers is equivalent to walking around a baseball diamond 45 times or walking across a football field 55 times.
