Furthest race you could run with zero training
At your current athletic level. No training, you get a call at 8pm and are told you have to run a race at 8am the next morning.

You’re not allowed to walk at any point, but you’re not expected to shatter any time records either. A modest jog.

A. 5k
B. 10k
C. Half marathon
D. Marathon
E. Other

I am in probably the worst shape of my life (thanks a lot, beer) but I feel confident in a 10k. A half would really be pushing it but it’s possible. So for the sake of honesty, I’ll say B.

Edit: “farthest” for you grammar twatwaffles.

No way. Would be too hung over with that little notice.

I did a half in like 2.25 hrs without training. It sucked and I walked with a limp for about a month afterwards but it was doable

E. None of the above.

I could power through a 5k and die right after crossing the finish line.

Right now probably a 5k or 10k. A lot would depend on the weather. If it is around 60 degrees at the start I think I’d be able to manage a 10k. If it’s 85 and humid then a 5k.

I run every day but never competitively (against anyone else or in an event).

I could complete a marathon tomorrow but have zero desire to do so. (And won’t)

I’ll stay at my present 5k-10k per day.

I think 1 mile is the longest distance I've ever run at one time so I have no idea.

That’s not true at all. A 5k without walking really isn’t some huge feat.

re: Furthest race you could run with zero training
I did hood to coast with no training. Its a 200 mile relay split amongst 12 people. My three legs were, 6 miles, 5 miles on a gravel mountain road, and a 8 miles to finish it off. After the first leg, the only time my legs didn't hurt was when they were moving but at the same point I was drained from the running and the lack of sleep. Will definitely train for the next one.

re: Furthest race you could run with zero training
I absolutely hate to run but am fit enough to run a marathon but my body would be wrecked because I am not used to running more than 5 miles and running is a tertiary part of my cardio conditioning. Now if we were talking about cycling 100 or even 200 miles I would be much happier about what I was doing at 8am the next day.
